Victorian Stained Glass Bay Window Restoration

Just before Easter the studio completed a repair and restoration of four fantastic Victorian stained glass bay window panels.  There were several breaks within the borders that needed replacing with restoration glass to match and new border leads were needed across the four panels.  The stained glass windows were then cleaned and polished to bring them back to their former glory.

Such a great feature for the house that is worth all the attention they needed, with some wonderful handmade spun rondels and coloured textured glass.  The stained glass windows have now be taken to the glazier for encapsulating into double glazed units and will then be installed into new wooden window frames.

Victorian Stained Glass Toplight

The studio has been working on designing and making a period Victorian Stained Glass toplight window.  Using a traditional Victorian pattern and glass colours, the new window has been made to fit the bespoke size of the aperture above the door and is more in-keeping with the age of the house.

The window has now been fitted above the customers front door in Stourbridge.

Formal Unveiling of the Sankey House Glass

Amblecote History Society will be holding the official unveiling of the ‘Sankey House Glass’ on Thursday evening of the 14th May 2015.  Local historian and author Graham Fisher MBE will be unveiling the heritage Victorian glass, which will then be on permanent display at the Webb Corbett Visitor Centre for all to see.

The ‘Sankey House Glass’ is part of the local history, which was saved from the Victorian Sankey House, Amblecote High Street, which was also known as the Stourbridge Dance School before the property was demolished.  The glass which is a series of 3 large cut-glass panels and smaller stained & cut-glass decorative panels, will form a ‘New Window’ within the Visitor Centre.  With funding from Dudley Council and the expert craftsmanship and skill of glass artist Paul Floyd and Creative Woodworker Jamie Hubbard, this heritage glass has been saved for posterity.

The Webb Corbett Visitor Centre at the Glasshouse in Amblecote, is open from 10am till 4pm Tuesday to Saturday.  Ian Dury the Heritage Officer can be contacted on telephone 01384 399419 for further information.
