It is with great sadness I must inform you that Wayne passed away on Wednesday, August 23, 2023, after a short illness. There will be a private family service at the Veterans Cemetery in Boise, where his ashes will be placed. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Disabled American Veterans (DAV).

I will be closing the business over the next few months. Any repairs that he did not get to will be returned to the customer.

Thank you all for a great 42 years in business. Wayne loved what he did. He will be missed. – Jan Montano

Montano’s Antique Glass Repair — Since 1981

We provide a service repairing antique and collectible glass, crystal, and china. We offer quality work, reasonable prices, professional standards and two old-fashioned words that have not lost their meaning for us… Honesty and Integrity

We specialize in the recutting and restoration of American Brilliant Cut Glass using stone wheels, copper wheels, and state of the art modern diamond wheel cutting. We repair rim chips from goblets to chargers, and we take the extra time to roll the edges inside and out, giving your item a quality, just-made appearance. We use an optically clear polishing process, unequaled in the profession.

We also repair Galle, Lalique and Verlys. The frosted finish on this glass can be duplicated. Other types of quality repairs are done on Steuben, Waterford, and Baccarat.

We also mend glass and crystal using permanent crystal clear adhesives, and we can replace daubers on the ends of perfume stoppers. We make internal stoppers for lay-down perfume bottles, and we seat stoppers in decanters and bottles, from large to small. We repair collars of bottles and recut figural and geometric perfume bottle stoppers, and we can also replace damaged stopper ends.

The list is endless of what we can repair, unlimited by imagination, but sometimes limited by technology. We can’t perform miracles, but in most cases we come close!
