The Corning Museum of Glass does not have a repair service (our Conservator works exclusively on museum pieces).

The following list may help you find someone to repair your Steuben horse's head:

Our Conservator suggests searching the AIC website: AIC - How to find a conservator http://www.conservation-us.org/about-conservation/find-a-conservator

For more information: American Institute for Conservation of Historic & Artistic Works (AIC), 1717 K Street, NW, Suite 200, Washington, DC 20006, 202-452-9545; fax: 202-452-9328

The AIC's website is: <http://aic.stanford.edu/>

The website includes information about ceramics and glass care as well as the “Find a Conservator” database.

Or, ask these appraisers of Steuben glass who they would recommend for repair of your piece:
