 Whether you just found the slag glass table lamp of the century in the back barn or at an estate sale.  Maybe inherited a Tiffany stained glass lamp or Handel lamp that needs a little love.  My old world craftsmanship and  skills can help you.  My knowledge of lighting , materials and contacts will be at your service.  White metal with filigree work was known for its ability to retain detail when removed from its master mold.  It formed at a very low temperature which made it faster and cheaper to use.  Most lamp frames consisted of 3-8 sections of metal that had to be alloy soldered together.  Separations, cracks or breaks between these sections are easily repaired and can retain the same strength as when manufactured.  Other times when tears or breaks occur in the middle of a section the repair will be performed on the interior.  On the interior of the break in most cases I create a bridge with copper that will give the break extra support.   Depending on the original metal finish the repair may be less noticeable.  In most cases it will be like a hair line.   Table lamps with missing white metal parts presents an extensive restoration process were removing an existing metal part and casting  a new part.
