Antique glass globe repair with missing pieces

Sunday, April 3rd, 2011 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Antique lamp repair, Glass Globe, Glueings | 1 Comment »

The” gone with the wind oil lamp” has been in the family for many years .  Some one broke it and lost some of the pieces. This make the restoration of the glass globe very difficult.  First we reassembled the the pieces we had leaving a large hole that needed to be filled.   Casting  a mold off of the antique globe we were able to make a new curved white opal glass to fill the hole.

Crystal Repair cut glass lamp repair

Thursday, April 9th, 2009 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique lamp repair, Chandelier Repair, Glass Globe, Glueings | Comments Off on Crystal Repair cut glass lamp repair



This lead glass lamp sat on the night stand for decades before it was accidentally broken into pieces. The cut glass pattern on this crystal lamp help hide the glass restoration. There were some minor pieces missing, but we were able to discretely fill those areas. Crystal repair has greatly improved with the new generation of ultra violet cured adhesives that don’t yellow, and are to provide a permanent fix.
