The crystal  bobeche was broken during a move.  Dad  tried to find all the piece but an up short.  Gluing the remains showed a large piece was missing.  I decided that I would make a replacement bobeche.  Filling the hole left by the missing pieces was an option but not a good one

Crystal repair chandelier bobeche replacement

The bobeche for the antique crystal chandelier was broken and discarded.  The search was on for the replacement part.  None was found.  I made the glass  blank .  Then I  cut , polished and drilled the holes for the pins.  Sent to me from our neighbors to the north Ontario Canada.
