R e p a i r s  
Our main line of work is repairing broken glass items and then using grinding and polishing techniques to eliminate evidence of damage. We can repair items such as vases, decanters, glasses, bowls, perfumes and ornaments. Due to the unpredictability and hidden stresses incurred when glass is damaged, all repairs are carried out at the customers own risk. If you cannot find what you are looking for or would like more information, please send us an e-mail
