The antique lamp had many broken panels and some of the metal pieces were missing. I used old glass to make the matching panels. The glass was an old pattern that isn’t made any more.
I have old glass stock that matched the broken panels. I believe it was made by Mississippi Glass Company.
Rewired lamp using brown cloth wire .
The Pairpoint Shade was broken in many pieces.
Sent to me from Louisiana the old light fixture was hung in the hallway and fell victim to the painters ladder. The broken glass was very thin and a compound bend that makes it hard to duplicate.
Out door light with four broken curved beveled glass pieces . The hard part is the metal it got bent when the large piece of ice fell and hit the light. First with a hammer and a piece of wood I repair the metal . On to the glass I made a mold and bent 1/4 inch glass to the pattern needed .Test fit each piece then hand beveled each glass panel. Installed the new beveled bent glass panels and gave the light a bath.

This beautiful painted pairpoint shade had a crack running down from the top .
I was told this is from a fire engine . Its is made of flashed red glass and has a beveled edge and a number six engraved on it. Flash glass is made by layering two colored glasses together in this case red and clear. I have restored many carriage lamps over the years I wish I had photographed them now. I also make globes for oil lamp like on the railroad.
Replacement bent glass for a new light fixture .We were faced with the challenge of repairing this broken bent flashed glass panel . We were able to make a custom mold from the origanal and successfully bent a new piece and happily ship it back to the costomer. The cuved glass was not a true radius and the glass was white flashed with a forsted ( sand blasted ) texture. See below for the photos.
We repaired a broken Pairpoint puffy
