True Tales From Old Houses

I was recently interviewed by an American podcast, True Tales from Old Houses, where I tell the story of how I got into this business of dealing in old window glass. I also explain the difference between British and American stained glass. If you have been thinking of buying from me you might be interested to listen to get to know me. I appear 13 minutes into the episode.

The podcast series is a general fountain of knowledge/discussion for anyone interested in the history and preservation of old houses.

Anything is possible.

I have a desire to “flag” this design this weekend! It has sold but I can supply it made new to your required size using my bespoke service. This was made in size of 12″ x 15 3/4″ (303mm x 401mm). The following photos demonstrate the craft involved in making such a piece.

Stage 1 – design.

The flag on the right is the image we used for the basis of design. The left image is the final technical drawing. We chose a crumpled flag as it suits the small size but yours could be more unravelled or  completely linear.

Stage 2 – production – acid etched, handpainted and kiln fired.

Suncatcher or window panel?

It can have hooks soldered to the top for hanging but these can be snapped off for fitting into a window sash frame.
