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.

Antique Glass Epergne Repair

Friday, December 18th, 2009 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, broken glassware, Broken Stem, Glueings | Comments Off on Antique Glass Epergne Repair

Broken into many pieces the antique glass came in for repair. It has been in the family along time and met so much could I repair it.  I told them it would not be perfect but I would do my best .  The first thing I needed to do was give it a bath. Then I dill out the broken fitter ( stopper ) out of the bottom. Then came the  fitting of the pieces to see what was missing.

If you look close you can see the cracks . It will take just a little creative decoration and it can be displayed for all to enjoy.  Antique crystal with the copper wheel engraving the quality of this piece are rare. Broken crystal after restoration doesn’t all ways come out flawless  but you do have to look close to see the repair. Send in the flowers.

glass clown repair

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Crystal Repair Pictures | Comments Off on glass clown repair

A Venitian Glass Clown with one broken hand and one missing hand was sent from Dallas   Texas for repair.  First I cut off the small pieces left from the hand and ground it smooth. Then I made a new glass hand .  It looks like a micky mouse hand.  Its a white glove with only four fingers. They have been making glass clowns in Venice Italy for at least eighty years. I have made  Bo Ties , Balloons, Hats, Shoes, and every thing else for repairing them.

Can’t repair a stopper that is missing . So I designed two stoppers and my cleint pick the one she liked best. I ground a glass rod to fit the perfume bottle.Then found a cute little prism to act as the handle. Last was thing to do was make the new dauber and attach it to the stopper . This repaired crystal perfume bottle is ready for the stinky stuff.  Antique glass repair is very rewarding.In all the years I have been restoring crystal perfume bottles and stoppers this is the smallest and nices one. The sterling silver top makes it.
