This Waterford Crystal vase had a broken bottom.   Sent to me with a piece missing and they lost  the piece . My only option was to replace the bottom. I needed a piece  of glass with a star cut in it and it had to be a good crystal. I found a crystal pitcher  that would work so I removed the bottom .

Crystal Repair antique cut glass epergne

Broken cut glass

The antique cut crystal piece was broken and apiece was missing. I knew I would have to make a new pedal. Antique glass comes in many colors even the clear “crystal” glass. I found in my parts department a piece of antique glass the right color and shape for this repair. I ground and polished the new pedal. Crystal repair is challenging. With the replace pedal finished I beveled the side of the bowl so I would get a good bond. Then cut in the thumb prints design. Being able to grind and polish a piece of glass that been bonded together speaks well of the strength of the adhesive. This repair job came from Pittsburgh Pa. from a very nice lady. Who I quote ” it’s not a bad drive two hours tops a little shopping lunch and were on our way home. Many customers are surprised what kind of damaged crystal can be restored. Most clients after using my services say I didn’t know that could be repaired. I threw away a lot of glass that could have been repaired. I wish I knew about you.

These arms are off a antique crystal candleabra. Made in the 1700 s the wires go on the out side of the arms . There are no holes for the wires to run through. I will get pictures of the chandelier when its complete and post them .  The crystal arms were sent to me for repair from Oregon. The piece has been in the family a long time. I would love to know how it got to Oregon and when. I think it came from England.
