Crystal Repair Antique Glass with chipped foot

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, LaLique Crystal Repair | Comments Off on Crystal Repair Antique Glass with chipped foot

The antique  Lalique  Crystal cigarette  jar was broken years ago.  The foot had a very large chip out of it.  The chip was to large to be ground out so replacement  was the only option. Over the years I have saved many pieces of glass. My basement is like a junk yard of glass.   I found a Lalique Crystal foot in my glass junk yard.

 

Chipped Lalique Crystal Foot

The chipped glass jar was gram’s and sat on the coffee table for many years .  The antique glass jar held cigarettes back in the day when every one smoked.
