… but I hope you enjoy looking at what customers have done with salvaged window panels I have rescued and sent to them. Although I believe original leaded lights should be maintained within the original properties I am pleased that they can at least be reused in the following ways.
“Hi Richard, Probably 4 years ago I came over and bought some glass from you for our little garden house. I knew I would be a long time sending you pictures I promised. The roof is a green roof, those 6 pack plugs which the garden centre plants come in, filled with compost, fitted into the roof frame and covered in gravel once planted, in it’s 3rd year. More or less put the roof on and filled the sides afterwards. Anyway, now finished, a lovely space and a great use for windows. Best wishes for your continued success and many thanks for providing the raw materials for our ‘Glass House’ great for having coffee in the fresh air on especially on colder days.” Graham – Oxfordshire.
Here’s set R931 which I sent to Tara in Virginia, USA …
… and here’s what she did!

Carla – North Carolina, USA.
What I like about the above photo is the contrast between new and old. Carla has mounted the window sashes exactly as I sent them – she has not repainted the frames. She also chose an art deco design which I think suits the linear arrangement of everything in the room.
Louis – Tennessee, USA. (R370b)
Colin from Hitchin “I thought you might be interested to see how I used the piece of leaded stained glass I recently purchased from you. The oak door is original to the house and dates from 1926 and I have removed the top section of the door to let in the leaded light. The hall is now much less gloomy. I attached the stained glass to a frosted glass double glazed panel using bathroom translucent sealant before installing using offcuts from the bit of door I removed and sealant.”

Mike says: “…looking as if it hasn’t been touched for 100 years. And that is a comment from a neighbour. Several people – some strangers have complimented the result.”
The great thing about dealing in old stained glass windows is that I can change the view from my lounge window anytime I like. That said, these things tend to hold value so if you get bored with one just sell it on! I have several of this design, with worldwide shipping or collection welcome. […]

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 […]
