Hello everyone.  I just joined this forum because I purchased a Chicago Mosaic lamp that has quite a few cracked panels.  I asked a friend who repairs antique lamps and he told me that the cost to replace the cracked panels with matching antique glass was around $100 per panel.  I live in the Chicago suburbs so I plan to ask around if this is a fair estimate, but I thought I would ask all of you.  I paid too much for the lamp, but I really love it so I might bite the bullet and get the most severely damaged panels replaced.

Depends on how many pieces have to be replaced in each panel. The price seems a little steep for only 2 or 3 pieces.
