"I took another persons post/ advice and purchased a lid gripper and it did not work.  I was afraid the cap would crack or break so I just left it on. What I wanted fixed was done using alternative method so no need to pop open anymore. …"

"The vintage caps are not an inner and outer cap, they are one-piece (with an O-ring), and screwed on.  They have to be twisted off."

"Thanks for the advice!   Are the vintage outer caps screwed on the bottle or do they simply fit over the inner cap and need to be pulled off (instead of twisting it off)?"

"Not glued on but they don't come off easy.  Hand grip and lots of effort should get it to come off.  If you use tools you do run the risk of breaking the lid. A lid gripper like this may help"

How Do You Remove The Outer Decorative Cap From A Vintage 70s/80s Century Bottle?

How do you remove the outer decorative gold cap from a vintage (1970s/80s) Century size bottle?  I need to try and repair a cloudy bottle on a Copper Coach lamp but the outer cap will not budge.  I am afraid that it will crack if I force it (and the cap is in such great condition).   Were the outer caps on the older lamp lamps glued on?  See More

Good day,
I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and demand it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on(mrs.bb.abiolabawuah00@gmail.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day.
Mrs.Dankwa Perious.
