Custom replacement glass globe for antique light with cut glass design

Friday, May 30th, 2014 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique lamp repair, bubble convex glass, Etched Glass, Glass Globe | Comments Off on Custom replacement glass globe for antique light with cut glass design

The replacement globe was very large and had a cut glass design.  We used the old broken glass globe to make a mold used in bending the glass replacement.

The replacement convex glass was frosted and the cut glass design was drawn on it.

The broken globe was sent from Arizona . The contractor broke three globes on the job site while restoring and old court house.  I knew I could make the new globes but matching the design on the globe was going to be the challenge.
