About this title


Stained glass has long been a part of domestic architecture, but in the late 1800s its popularity spread. In part this was due to new manufacturing techniques and distribution networks, but also caught the imagination of Victorian, Art Nouveau, and Arts and Crafts designers around the world. Here are over 350 examples of architectural stained glass. They span several countries and many years. The styles range from Victorian intricacy to the geometry of the Prairie School. The book includes etched glass and beveled constructions, in addition to the color leaded windows. Each piece is illustrated in color, with dimensions and current market values. Today stained glass, both old and new, is once agan finding its way into the home. It makes a delightful accent in a transom or a glorious complete wall. This book will help the reader understand and appreciate the many varieties of old stained glass that are available.
