Repair of Damaged Lamp
Here is a sequence of pictures of a damaged lamp sent to me for repair from Warlingham in Surrey.
This is a hanging lamp damaged mainly bent in and dis-lodged glass which some pieces needed replacing .
To start with the repair I remove the hanging chain/support of the hanging lamp there after, I then release the pressure of the bend to the lamp, this enable you to take out some of the glass to form the shape of the lamp.
Most of the original glass was saved so very much cleaned them up. I applied fresh copper foiling I then soldered into place.
Once this is done a tidy up of the solder lines there after, I then using “Patina” solution. to stain the colouring of the solder.
Finally, I then cleaned and polished up of the lamp.
Here are a selection of pictures of this process of repairing the lamp from the beginning to the finished lamp repaired.
