    Contact an antiques dealer. They usually know people who repair antiques without ruining it.

    Be sure it’s quartz. Quartz and marble are treated very differently.

      I thought it was cut glass, but it is 1/4 inch thick. I am 70 and it belonged to my great grandmother as part of a three piece set she received when she was married.

    Take it to someone that can repair it properly. It's to old to just glue it together.

    even if its 1/4" thick it could well be cut glass. Good old cut glass is Very heavy. Is it heavily cut/decorative, or just solid with no decoration?

    Yes, I’ve already responded to this once. To confirm, . if this is indeed cut glass, you need a professional opinion. If you don’t give a flying for what the $ value is and just want to enjoy for yourself, then put it together as Google or the lady above recommends and understand that you can’t necessarily put fresh strawberries (juicy) in it for a long time without lining with a careful layer of plastic wrap. Obviously, I love cut glass, which should Never be washed in hot water. Hot water will make it crack. I’ve found that 90% of glass breakage is helpful friends, God bless theM for their well intentioned assistance.
