crystal repair broken glass Daum Nancy vase

Saturday, September 8th, 2012 Posted in Antique Glass Repair, Crystal Repair Pictures, Glueings | Comments Off on crystal repair broken glass Daum Nancy vase

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.

Daum Nancy glass figurine repair chipped and missing ear restoration

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).
