My Mum recentl gave me a single glass cendlestick that has a lot of sentimental value .... and yup .... it's broken in two

The stick has snapped from the base - it is a clean break. The candlestick is quite sturdy but does not respond to superglue !!

Any ideas how to mend glass please
Thanks

sorry - I have no idea but one thought - could you take it to a local antique shop/restorer type place and ask them for advice?

Found this article for you. By the sounds of it, you are better off not attempting to repair it yourself as you might make it harder for a professional to repair cleanly.
This one is an Italian company, but I'm sure with some research you could find others.

You can buy special glass glue that dries crystal clear from the create & craft website.
