As the saying goes *chitt happens* via the mail system.  I will not be the last person who incurs this via mail parcel service.... :-\


I will repair it as I have looked around.  IT is WORTHY to repair that one bird to go with the other bird IMHO -- so I still have a pair.  Even the one that did not incur the same fate ......  Still has a Value, as a Single bird.  But I am going to try to fix the other bird, as it was a clean break and Not a million glass chards......wHEW....is all I can say about that

I am going to try this glue LOCTITE GLUE - Here to fix the one bird, so I still have a pair.    I believe it worthy to fix, as I am sure not going to toss the one bird out.  Over my dead body......LOL

Any else tried this Glue?  Or maybe it is just from around here...but I will give it a try.  The reviews seem good about it.


I love my birds, they will not be going no where.  The Nest home is Right here.....LOL.  Glad I found them!!

Rose, your bird is in the zoo now at http://sites.google.com/site/muranozoo/birds-by-barovier-toso. That is one good looking bird! You are so lucky.

You could try using the windscreen repair resin. Its about 20. It is hardened by UV light and dries with the same refractive quality as the glass. I tried to fix a chip but the area was too small but should work well with the bird. I get upset at times with damaging glass myself, a piece that has made it through 90 yrs + a boot sale or Charity shop makes it to me in one piece then I break it !!! My latest is dropping a Riedel Crystal Glass, I got it  for a 1 but still feel the loss lol. I would try to sort the bird as they look great as a pair.

Thanks will check into that. 

I have a small UV light here (compliments of fellow UK GMB member  :) ) and I did FINALLY find a bigger UV light for home (electric) as it is one of those for checking $$$.  So I guess that would work to harden any UV glue that need to dry via a UV light.  Do the smaller ones work as well, since it is more portable?

If we ever see the sun again it will harden in natural sunlight but takes a while. I think the UV lamp has to be fairly strong. I left mine on overnight and that helped but the sunlight set it better as my UV wasnt very strong either.
