This pattern is faithfully reproduced from Pugin's original design circa 1840. The pattern is available in combinations of
Double Fleur -
This pattern is a double "etch" opaque glass that provides the best standard option for privacy.
A design based on leaded glass of the late Victorian Period. The pattern is outlined in solid black enamel and shaded with Blue and Green enamels, Amber silver stain and Glass Etch. The design may be cut to size and used as is, or cut into its constituent squares and leaded together to produce leaded lights. The distance between the black lines separating each square is 102mm (4”).
The method of producing “etch” enamel glass was developed and patented in 1805 by John Davenport. In 1988, Barron Glass set out to revive this process of decorating sheet glass which involved developing a technique of kiln firing the glass which enabled large sheets of glass to be decorated. Importantly, this unique process maintained the flatness of the glass whilst applying extraordinary high levels of colour consistency.
Etched and enamelled surfaces should face the inside of the building when glazed to protect the decorated surface from the elements. Glass subject to high levels of condensation e.g. in a bathroom, should have the decorative surface incorporated into the centre of the glass laminate to further protect the decorated surface. Please specify "internal laminate" when ordering, if this is required.
We do not recommend our annealed glass be toughened which is why we offer all designs in a laminated safety glass option of either 5mm or 7mm. -
