Stained Glass - An Architectural Art Form
Stained glass is an architectural art form – an essential part of the character of your house. Chicago is the only city in the country to feature gold mirrored glass in thousands of its residential stained glass windows – pure 24 karat double-sided gold mirror that reflects the lamp light indoors and adds sparkle to life on the street. Our goal is to help homeowners and stained glass studios appreciate, preserve and restore this uniquely Chicago art form.
Finished Mirrors and Authentic Stained Glass Designs
We sell the thin gold mirrored glass for stained glass windows on our sister site at www.angelgilding.com. We collect gold mirror stained glass designs. We have additional authentic Arts and Crafts stained glass designs for our customers to consult.
Stained Glass Owner's Manual
Our online Stained Glass Owner's Manual is designed to answer some of the questions our customers have asked over the years including:
Stained Glass Ltd. - Business Announcement
As of September 1, 2010, we are no longer accepting stained glass jobs so we can concentrate on our mirroring supply business, AngelGilding.com . Please feel free to use the designs on this site and read our stained glass Owner's Manual.
Our books are certainly still available as shown above.
If you are looking for a studio to repair a broken stained glass window, we suggest that you look in your local, printed Yellow Pages under the heading "Glass, Stained and Leaded" to find a studio near you.
