Crystal perfume bottle chipped and broken neck repair and new stopper

Monday, November 7th, 2011 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Broken Decanter Repair, Stopper Repair | Comments Off on Crystal perfume bottle chipped and broken neck repair and new stopper

The chip was to large to be ground and polished. I needed to make a replacement  glass neck.  The small crystal  bottle also needed a new stopper.

Before

I cut off the broken neck and polished the top of the bottle.

She broke the crystal perfume  bottle but saved the sterling silver overlay and stopper.  I made a new bottle and fit the old stopper to it.

I made a mold to blow the glass into so the new bottle would fit the old sterling silver liner.  I made the hole in the new bottle small so I could grind the old stopper to fit.

Stains inside the bottle needed to be polished out.   The “sick glass ” devalues the antique cut crystal bottle.

The antique perfume bottle has been in the family for many years it holds a lot of sentimental value .  The bottle has been broken for over fifteen years . The local glass companies and antique dealers in  Miami Fla. said it was not repairable .  Her husband persisted and told her she would find someone to repair it keep looking.

The antique amber perfume bottle was sent to me with a broken neck and broken dauber.  First step in the restoration process is to remove the broken neck on the antique glass bottle. Great care is taken to remove what was left of the neck with out damaging the bottle.

The antique cut glass cruet was missing a stopper. It’s one of four cruets that fit in a sterling ring. With out the stopper the value would be greatly diminished.  I made  new crystal stopper.

A pair of Antique crystal cruets with a very delicate cut pattern were sent to me for repair.  The one crystal bottle was missing apart of the stopper. They sent along the top of the antique crystal stopper but the bottom had broken off and was lost.

crystal repair steuben bottle stopper

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Broken Decanter Repair, chipped glassware, Stopper Repair | Comments Off on crystal repair steuben bottle stopper

Its a small little chip on the bottom of the stopper. Steuben makes the finest crystal in the world but they made colored glass many years ago. This is one of the old ” colored glass”  Steuben pieces. They are very valuable so a small chip is well worth repairing. The repair is simple just grind the stopper down . The important part is to match the same grit size so the frosting on the glass is the right . I have been a crystal repair man for thirty years and I love glass. I get crystal sent to me from around the world and I very lucky to be able to repair so many nice pieces of glass.

This glass perfume bottle had an old style repair . They put a silver neck on top of the broken bottle and glued the stopper in.  I removed the old repair and uncovered the broken and missing neck. The stopper was also broken. I made a new neck attached it to the perfume bottle .  Then I ground and fit the old stopper to the new neck. It ready for some over powering  rose sented perfume.
