Chipped wine glasses ,chipped water glasses ,chipped rock glasses, champagne glasses and chipped cordial glasses can be ground and polished to look like new. Crystal glassware is hand made and each glass is a little different size. Stemware from the major manufactures can be very expensive and some times the patterns have been retired so repairing is the only option.

The Waterford crystal lamp was sent to me from Pennsylvania for repair. The base of he lamp was broken off and they didn’t have all the pieces . There was a crack a running up the bottom and I had to carefully control the crack and turn it so it ran back to the bottom. I didn’t want the crack to run up to the top of the lamp.
I looked and found a Waterford Crystal bowl to make the new base out of.
Cut off broken parts from the bottom of the lamp.
I loop the crack back down and remove piece so it can be repaired. The lamp is stable now by controlling the crack we minimized its in-pack. Little cracks only stay little for awhile.
Smooth and polish the parts for reassembly .
Using a Waterford Crystal bowl I made a new base for the lamp complete with Waterford logo.
Drill a large hole in the bowl.

Broken crystal stem are repairable. This Waterford wine glass was broken in three pieces. I repaired the glass for a fraction of replacement cost.
If you break a wine or water glass you should save the pieces because hey can be used to repair other glasses.
