Stained Glass is a Character-Defining Feature!

The Victorians loved colored glass and used a lot of it in their homes. Whether produced by a master artist or in a decorator’s factory, it is characteristic of the time and important to the character of the house. It should be preserved. There are experts who can restore damaged stained glass and provide advice for maintaining glass that has survived without damage.
