crystal repair perfume bottle silver liner

Monday, October 31st, 2011 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Crystal Repair Pictures, Stopper Repair | Comments Off on crystal repair perfume bottle silver liner

She broke the crystal perfume  bottle but saved the sterling silver overlay and stopper.  I made a new bottle and fit the old stopper to it.

I made a mold to blow the glass into so the new bottle would fit the old sterling silver liner.  I made the hole in the new bottle small so I could grind the old stopper to fit.
