Antique lighting dealers and vintage lamp specialty companies requiring bent glass panels should know I stress perfection.

My professional portfolio is broad, from a lighting fixture in Korea to the Christian Science Center in Boston. Browse and enjoy some of the white metal lamp frame repair projects I have completed. To be less intimidating repairs range between $75-250 for small jobs. Day projects can be priced. Before doing so, you may wish to look over and digest the costs of the repairs, which I set forth as follows.

A (mold) must be made from your original broken or good curved slag glass panel. My master mold making method requires about 8 hours of labor to complete. The process of casting a mold requires 2 kiln firings to set the mold at 900 degree's. It also requires a paper patterns displaying the mathematical shape of a bent panel after bending.  It takes about 2 hours and in some cases of compound bending longer.
Custom mold- (1-12") $125   
Custom bent slag glass panel - (single or compound bend 1-12") $85ea  .

Not every vitage lamp can be rescued for many reasons. It could be the extent of the damage or  the cost of lamp health care in this country.  If I'm unable to resuscitate your lamp, you may wish to donate your lamp for parts.   PLEASE don''t trash it.    I will provide the UPS pick-up label and shipping back to the studio.  To learn more send a picture of your white metal shade and express "antique lamp parts".

White metal lamp frame repairs by Len
A low heat and special solder is used to mend the joints between white metal panels.
White metal lamp repairs
Since 1978. I have been working with white metal repairs. I make my own molds. And I bend the glass. White metal is a very sensitive low heat metal that was cast into a mold. It can contain several alloys such as zinc or aluminum which are also sensitive to heat and prone to cracking if bent or folded. When I repair lamps the repairs are completed on the inside of the cast white metal lamp frame. Minimizing the visual crack but reinforcing it on the inside with copper or zinc support.
