Table of Contents

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