Coloured glass door restoration, Streatham

Our clients were decorating the whole of the front of their house, and when it came to the door set there was a lot to do!

The diamond leaded side panel was very loose, and need to be removed and re-leaded.

The centrepiece in the door had been lost and replaced with an ugly substitute, not reflecting the original at all.  We used the original design from surrounding doors as the basis for a slightly simpler design, made in Muranese pattern glass, similar to that in the 12 smaller panels.

The lead in these smaller panels had all been painted gold, 2 were damaged to the extent they need to be rebuilt, and all the others removed, the gold paint stripped off, and the panels re-cemented and polished.

Fitted in September 2011
