I got one a couple of years ago from Crystal Times but it may have been his last


If yours is just scratches it can be refinished
I had a customer's one done last month. It came out great (though only had small scratches in it).

That would be easy to stone off. I often down size glasses a little by hand on my fine oil stone.
