Curved Glass for my Revo Cut-off lantern

Postby Dave » Fri Aug 31, 2012 5:40 pm

Hi all
as some of you may know i now have a Revo C13723/T Cut off lantern, Courtesy of Mikey, (CSD) which is missing all its glass. All the parts are curved pieces of glass. the main lens is clear, but there are two rimpled mirrored pieces internally, that act as reflectors, and additional light control. i have now completely stripped this lantern but am interested in using origial glass parts in it. that means finding a specialist dealer who can remake these glass parts and reglaze the lantern, but does anyone here know of anywhere that can perform such a task?
i am about to upload photos of the lantern, so please take a look at them.
All the best
Dave

Best bet is a Window / Glass manufacturing Company like THESE or maybe use Polycarbonate to make the lantern a little lighter

Hi

Theres a place in Walthamstow that will bend your glass Called glass bending and decorating also called B&S glass. They do a lot of lamp glass and they could bend your dimpled glass (found on old allotments!!) and then you get it silvered. BUT for the glass you want say bye bye to £300 !!.
If you find anywhere else let me know!

a much cheaper option that would look the part is plastic for the bowl and that dimpled shiny aluminium sheet the do in B&Qs for the mirrors. the dimple is a bit too big but i wont tell anyone!

Luckily my glass was ok but i did have the reflectors re silvered. I Had a curved glass panel done for a gas light a few years ago and the one panel cost the best part of £200. Im still looking for a cheap glass bender!
