The Lalique Crystal cat had a small chip on its ear. Lalique has a frosted acid etched finish . The chip really show because it is clear glass.
The lead glass crucifix had a large chip in the base. A cross like his is on the grave of Rene LaLique the founder of LaLique Crystal .
This LaLique Crystal piece was sent to me from Florida for restoration. The crystal base had a large chip broken off the corner. The piece that broke off had been lost many years ago so bonding the chip back one was not an option.
By removing the entire base and making a replacement I was able to restore this glass .
The LaLique Rams are ready to go back on diplay.

This is the first time I have worked on a LaLique Crystal Bottle like this. Over thirty years of repair I have worked on a lot of LaLique Crystal. There were chips around the stopper holes so I polished then out then etched then to match .

Careless cleaning caused a chip on the ear of this LaLique Crystal Cat . Chipped Crystal can be ground and polish to look like new but when its Lalique after you remove the chip matching the etched finish is the challenge .
