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.

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.
Shown above is the stopper before repair.
The old Steuben glass is very valuable and very beautiful. Its one of my favorite glasses to work on.
