Victorian Sidelight Repair

A previous client returned with another repair. This time, a clear sidelight had a couple broken pieces. The window itself is modern construction done in a victorian style using round gems and a few bevels. The glass that was originally used was slightly seeded, meaning it contained an occasional line, ripple or air bubble. Matching glass is available, produced using traditional blowing techniques.

We removed the broken pieces and cleaned up the edges to prepare for replacement pieces. This being a Tiffany style window utilizing copper foil instead of led came, the process of restoring a few broken pieces is easier.
