Orrefors crystal repair chipped and broken glass birds

The crystal birds were dropped and broke. I need to cut off the broken pieces.  Then  layout the pieces and make a drawing of the pieces needed. I  made the replacement pieces of glass .  The hard part of this restoration is the fitting of the new pieces.

Crystal Repair Orrefos Candlestick

Friday, December 26th, 2008 Posted in All Repair Projects, Orrafors Crystal, Orrefors Crystal Repair | Comments Off on Crystal Repair Orrefos Candlestick

If you forget to put out the candle it will burn down and crack the candle cup. Repairing crystal candlesticks is a challenge.  The easy way is to make a new candle cup if all I could do is grind the old one down there wouldn’t be much glass left to hold the candle . Crystal repair on candlesticks can be avoided by drill a small hole up through the bottom of the candle removing the wick.  The candle will go out before it can crack the candle cup.
