Antique Glass Repair Chipped Daum Turtle

Friday, November 11th, 2011 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Chipped Glass Repair, Crystal Repair Pictures | Comments Off on Antique Glass Repair Chipped Daum Turtle

The rare Daum Glass turtle had a chip on the shell.  Grinding and polishing the chip is not an option. The difficulty is matching the density when filling the chip.  Antique Daum cast glass has a lot of detail and color . The translucent glass is very beautiful.

Daum Nancy glass figurine repair chipped and missing ear restoration

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Blowen Glass Replacements, broken glassware, Chipped Glass Repair, Figurine, glass sculpture repair, Glueings, zoo | Comments Off on 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).
