I received this nice little Carl Goldberg ACB vase from a friend and fellow collector as a gift, and it has a great design that unfortunately couldn't be seen, as much of the silver deposit (as is common with these old Goldberg pieces) is completely worn away.
Since there is no other damage to the piece, and I had nothing financially invested in it, I wanted to bring out the design in a way that didn't involve me trying to re-plate the raised areas (I don't even know if anyone does such a thing).
Enter... the fine-point silver sharpie! Don't judge - I think it produced a good result, and it looks a lot better sitting in my cabinet. This is not something that I recommend anyone ever do to their glass, but in this instance, for this small cabinet vase that I got for free, it did what I wanted it to do. :)
