Here are a few examples of Tiffany styled lamp which are constructed in the traditional method of copper foiling and soldering. As you can see from the pictures you can see the breaks and cracks on the left and the repaired state on the right. These lamps from around the country are just a few examples that have been restored and returned back to their owners.
As long as these Tiffany styled lamps are made in the traditional method (copper foiling) the process becomes a repair in reverse order of making a lamp. Care must be taken when removing any broken sections as you do not want to disturb the lamps construction. Once all the broken and cracked glass sections have been removed glass is then matched up to what had been used in the original lamp. Once this has been done you can then repair each section piece by piece making templates as you go along.
Tiffany and Tiffany styled lamps made in the traditional methods of copper foiling are easily repairable with the time and care required to preserve what has once been created.
These lamps were all restored back to their original state with an almost exact match in glass and a good clean up, much to the pleasure of the customer.
