Custom replacement glass globe for antique light with cut glass design

Friday, May 30th, 2014 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique lamp repair, bubble convex glass, Etched Glass, Glass Globe | Comments Off on Custom replacement glass globe for antique light with cut glass design

The replacement globe was very large and had a cut glass design.  We used the old broken glass globe to make a mold used in bending the glass replacement.

The replacement convex glass was frosted and the cut glass design was drawn on it.

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.
