Stained Glass Windows
ABOUT STAINED GLASS WINDOWS
There are two main types of stained glass window: those onto which the color is painted, and those made up of small pieces of self-colored glass. The techniques may be combined in a single window.
Today stained glass windows are usually used as small decorative features, for example set into entry doors. Specialist firms exist to repair and restore antique stained. Antique stained glass panels are also available for sale as architectural salvage.
