I recently sold a Stromberg Carlson to someone and it arrived with the glass top shattered in spite of very well cushioned packaging.
Does anyone know if there is a glass worker who can replicate the glass top?

You might search the forums here. There was a poster, Eddie Brimer, who reproduced one or had someone do it for him -- I don't recall which.

As I recall, the ones Eddie made were the pink ones? I may be wrong about that. I also seem to remember that he had more than one made.

Is there any way to get in touch with Eddie Brimer?

Its unfortunate that that glass broke--a reproduction won't be quite the same as the original.

I need a replacement one as well. My plan is to order some custom cut glass at a place like this, https://www.onedayglass.com/order-online/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwytOEBhD5ARIsANnRjVgQzqdhk__3IR0an71XxuXhSFE06ZWVbSzP9kSxA3Q_gCTuIYompyQaAjPCEALw_wcB, mask off the design and either sand blast it or use hide glue to chip away within the outlines of the pattern, and then either have it mirrored or apply something like this, https://www.ebay.com/itm/323858244276?var=512879979842 to the back.

Pick any one of his posts and send him a PM.

I sent him a PM awhile back about the reproduction glass and never got a reply—I don’t think he is in that business anymore.
