Antique Glass Repair Seuben Crystal Penguin

Sunday, November 13th, 2011 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Crystal Repair Pictures, Steuben Crystal, Steuben Crystal Repair | Comments Off on Antique Glass Repair Seuben Crystal Penguin

The antique glass penguin was broken and put away years ago.  The glass was discovered and the search was on to find some one to repair it.  The one fin was broken off and many of the small pieces were lost.  That  Steuben Crystal penguin held memories of years go by.

New Wing

I used a piece of Steuben Crystal to sculpt the replacement wing because of the color . Steuben is forty nine percent lead and very clear.  The lead also makes it very soft so I have to use the very best cerium oxide for the final step in the polishing process.

 I made two new glass parts to replace the broken steuben candlestick top and bottom.  This $900.00 Stueben candlestick is ready to use .When I repair  Steuben Crystal  the restoration are cost effective. Glass blowing is the key to this repair . With out the ablity to make new parts this broken crystal candlestick would end up in the trash. This antique crystal candlestick will make many more Christmas Dinners.
