This bowl had a place of honor on grandmas dinning room table for over four decades . There it sat with a stack of pennies taking the place of the missing foot. Grandmas birthday is coming up and wouldn’t it be nice to get the bowl repaired . The local antique dealers and glass shops said it couldn’t be repaired . What they should have said is they can’t repair it and they don’t know any one who can.
Cut glass bowl with a missing foot. The leg broke off and was missed placed over forty years ago .
First step in the repair process to remove what was left of the broken leg on the cut crystal bowl.
By casting a mold of one of the good glass legs I was able to make a new glass foot .
We were able to give grandma her pennies back after bonding the new foot to the bottom of the antique glass bowl
The local “experts ” got it wrong . It can be restored . The crystal repair projects I work on now come from all over the world.
Crystal repair is now high tech with the use of UV adhesives and high temp molds . Antique cut glass bowls like this one are repairable . Crystal repair has come a long way in the last thirty years .
