WATER GLASS BROKEN BOTTOM

This antique water glass has a broken bottom and just the bottom none of the sides of the glass was damaged. I was able to cut / grind off the botton and using a thin glass cut a diameter and made a new botttom.  Crystal water glass repair or antique rock glass  not shure what to call it but its ready to be used again.

Crystal Repair Orrefos Candlestick

Friday, December 26th, 2008 Posted in All Repair Projects, Orrafors Crystal, Orrefors Crystal Repair | Comments Off on Crystal Repair Orrefos Candlestick

If you forget to put out the candle it will burn down and crack the candle cup. Repairing crystal candlesticks is a challenge.  The easy way is to make a new candle cup if all I could do is grind the old one down there wouldn’t be much glass left to hold the candle . Crystal repair on candlesticks can be avoided by drill a small hole up through the bottom of the candle removing the wick.  The candle will go out before it can crack the candle cup.
