Ok. So , we all know I am no saint, however when I am searching for treasures and I come across something that is broken, I will buy it for next to nothing and fix it. Above, is an inkwell made by a contemporary of Tiffany’s, approx, 1900-1910. I fell in love with this extraordinary glass. It was simply amazing. But on the corner of the protrusion side was completely missing. I would say the size of a nickel, but missing from top to bottom. In other words a gaping hole. So being the MacGyver that I am, I repaired it. The picture where the piece is on end, the corner facing you was missing. Now, it’s not. Yep, I repaired glass. Don’t even ask, it was a MacGyver move. I sold it to a neighbor who loved it. Picked for 10.00 sold for 40.00. And yes, I disclosed its flaw. If in perfect condition, it would sell for $300 +. But It was completely worth it to me to save it. Completely.
