Stained glass restoration and repair, Crystal Palace, SE19

Three out of the 4 lower leaded light panels in this set had cracked or missing pieces, and they were generally in rather shaky condition.  The clients had decided for security reasons they wanted safety glass fitted to the outside.  We measured, and returned and fitted the necessary 6.4mm thick laminated safety glass, having removed the 4 leaded panels to the workshop for repairs.  As well as replacing the damaged pieces the panels were re-cemented and polished, then fitted with steel retaining bars, behind the laminated glass.
