A very old and beautiful decanter had a crack in it , was stained and part of the stopper was missing. The antique decanter with a silver collar had a locking stopper. That was a first for me . I have never seen a decanter like this.
The crack was running down from the neck so very carefully I turned the crack and made it run back up to the top. After removing the silver collar the broken piece was removed and the stains ( sick glass) were polish out .
Reinstall silver collar note key in lock.
Repair stopped by making new plug and grind and polish to fit decanter neck.
Grandmas antique glass cake plate was broken during washing. Hot water was the problem it happens over and over again. I seen it many times. The good part about heat cracks is they are very clean breaks. The pieces fit back together and there are no small chips. This antique glass plate looked great after the repair.

The antique cut glass cruet was missing a stopper. It’s one of four cruets that fit in a sterling ring. With out the stopper the value would be greatly diminished. I made new crystal stopper.

A pair of Antique crystal cruets with a very delicate cut pattern were sent to me for repair. The one crystal bottle was missing apart of the stopper. They sent along the top of the antique crystal stopper but the bottom had broken off and was lost. They also sent along one good antique cut glass cruet that need a stopper and one good crystal stopper.
Crystal repair like this requires some glass blowing to make the new parts.

The art deco perfume bottle had very large chips on the sides and front. The antique glass repair restored the look and the value. The antique glass is very thick and because of that I was able to grind and polish with out making a hole or changing the look.
This is the first time I have worked on a LaLique Crystal Bottle like this. Over thirty years of repair I have worked on a lot of LaLique Crystal. There were chips around the stopper holes so I polished then out then etched then to match .

The crystal decanter had a broken neck and they were missing pieces. The crystal repair job was going to be more than a glue job. I needed to replace the broken neck .I cut off what was left of the old one and attached the new neck. Its not a perfect match to the old neck but very close.
This antique glass decanter from the 1880 was in bad shape. It had a broken neck and missing pieces from the lip. The customer was skeptical that I could repair an antique cut glass decanter in such bad shape. I can waite to forward this post to him with the before and after pictures of his decanter. This is a very old and very good cut glass decanter and it would be a shame not to repair it. I cut off the broken part of the neck and then made a new neck and lip. I attach the new neck and fit the stopper. If you didn’t know it was repaired you would pour a drink and just enjoy.

An antique glass decanter with a broken stopper was brought in for repair. The stopper broke off many years ago and was lost. The owners still had the silver top to the stopper, but a new glass bottom had to be made. I started with a glass rod a little larger than the neck of the decanter. I ground the end of the glass rod to fit the neck of the decanter. I made a stem on top of the stopper through heat and manipulation. This was fitted in to the silver top. The other chips on the bottle were left alone because they all had a story to go with them.
Starting with a solid glass rod I shape the end .
