Stained Glass Restoration in the Prairie Style

When we moved into our 1911 home, some of the stained glass windows were severely buckled due to the settling of the house. Once the walls were straightened, I removed the windows, took apart and cleaned the glass pieces, and reassembled them with new lead canes. Four windows were restored and a new one made for the front door in the same style. A few of the broken pieces were replaced by old glass scoured from local glass shops. I learned that new glass did not have the same qualities and were a poor substitute. Eventually I hope to make matching stained glass panels for the tops of the windows in the family room. There are 13 (gulp) windows in that room.
