Antique glass globe repair with missing pieces

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.
