    We had two windows in our house that had beautiful, cut to clear red center panels with vine & leaf and floral design. First, the guy remodeling the bathroom broke one then my husband moving a piece of furniture broke the one in the stairway. Now they're just plain red glass. :(

    I have the pieces. There has to be a product that you can get that would bond the pieces back together. Even with cracks they'd be beautiful.

    There is UV activated glue for glass. This may work.

    We have a local stained glass place, but the owners are up there in years. I took it in and all he said was I could come take a class and make a new piece to fit. That wasn't what I wanted.

    Try a window glass shop. I have bought this glue at Lowe's. I patched a cracked huge glass storefront window with an overlay of thicker glass. All I did was cover the window with a dark blanket until I was ready to have it cure. Still attached after 5 years or so.

    We don't have a Lowe's nearby, but I'll look for the glue. Maybe Cape & Islands Glass has it. They do everything from cars to shower doors to mirrors.

    Hi,
    I had wonderful success with a cracked window just using Crazy glue. Capillary action will fill the crack and any left on the glass can be razored off. It at least holds it together so it doesn't shake and cause worse cracking.

    I think the UV glue completely disappears in case you get any where you don't want it seen.
