This Daum Nancy vase is very expensive and holds a lot of sentimental value. When it got broken they almost threw it out. This vase is shipped in a very nice box that has foam rubber cut to fit the vase. The form rubber was useful in the repair . It gave me a pattern to make the new glass replacement part. The shape and size of the crystal top mirrors the foam.
I removed the broken crystal piece from the green base. Then I make a replacement crystal vase to replace the broken one.
The ear was broken off and lost from a very expensive DAUM Nancy glass figurine. I had to sculpt part of a new ear to fit on the dark amber Daum Glass horse . Matching the very dark amber color was my first challenge . I made a dozen or more glass ears be for finding one I liked . Daum glass started with the notary Jean Daum Daum started making glass for watches and mirrors. (1825-1885).
Replacement Glass Ears
Acid etch glass to match glass head
