Re: Custom Glass In In Old China Cabinet


Maybe it would be easier to trade her in on a new model that likes IKEA.

I'm having a hard time visualizing exactly what you are looking for. I've had to order vintage glass before but nothing curved. If you had a pic it might help.

Re: Custom Glass In In Old China Cabinet


Why is there no picture of this glass or antique so we could help more?

Re: Custom Glass In In Old China Cabinet


Let's see a pic.

Get familiar with your auction houses, and another one will pop up eventually. That's going to be your parts piece.


For what it's worth, last year I decided to put a dresser out of it's misery, and let my sawzall at it. It was grandma's, and wow, did I piss off one on my sibs who had kept swearing they were going to restore it. (It was a delaminated mess, and my mother wanted it gone. Mom won.)

Btw..if you find one...You might want to just store it offsite for your "repairs", and then do a big reveal.

Re: Custom Glass In In Old China Cabinet


those are the best i could do ( didn`t rotate , sorry)
the pic of the paper drawing , shows how it looks
the real pic of the cabinet shows the reflection on the glass.

my WIFE DOES!!

I TRULY DON`T LIKE IT .
when standing in front , and looking at whats inside , it looks like somethings wrong , like the glass warped , it doesn`t look right . just like a mistake .
i did make the center one flat ( cuz i broke it ) , and it actually looks better.
but she still likes that warbled glass.
had a lot of termite , and water damage
i added the crown , and had to put a new back , and new toe kick on it , also the outside corners were were damaged , so i have to add wood, and re-round the corners , and bondo it so it looked original, wife found cool old knobs for it.
( still don`t like it )

thanks for rotating it" Kap ". the pic on file was right , but when i transferred it , it rotated sideways

Now that we know what's it's called, maybe a good glass shop can hook you up, and possibly have it in stock.
