Stained glass Clapham (Old Town), SW4

stained glass ClaphamInstalled at the end of September 2010, these are 2 new door panels to replace 1970s textured solid glass panels, and a rebuilt top panel, which had been subject to prior restoration, but was becoming unstable. The pattern was copied from the neighbouring houses - we did suggest some design changes, but in the end the view was taken to be consistent with the rest of the street. Each of the 3 panels is supported by 2 steel retaining bars, and the panels held to these with copper tie-wires, soldered to the lead. This is important in providing stability to the panels, promoting greater durability.
