My Mother's Vase

<< < (2/2)

Frank:
If it is only the foot that is broken, this could be replaced by a completely new one with relative ease, though it might needed to be glued on rather than fused. That would not cost a great deal and would allow you to retain the emotional value by keeping the original piece. It might be harder to replace the missing pieces but this could be done by glueing and stapling. A common way of repairing glasses for use i the past. The stapled repair is these days an interesting curiosity and conversation item.

Read this thread for an example and the 'how to' from 1899. Any competent handyman could easily follow these instructions today.

The label reads Alfa & Omega, Crystal T. Murano, Italy, with the rather amusing comment: "The little defects are caused by the esclusively handwork" (sic)

Arthur, I spotted this one on Ebay...it's in green, but very similar in design.  I thought you might like to see it.   :)

Well found Max!

I've shortened the URL as the other wasn't working for me:

Thanks Max. It's almost identical (apart from the colour) and. as it's not expensive, I may buy it for my Mum but keep on looking for a blue vase.

Thanks again.  :)
