Recently we have had a wonderful opportunity to supply some replacement stained glass hexagons for a magnificent domed roof light in Birmingham.
The listed building is undergoing a refit and we were contacted to see if we could match the original glass in the huge skylight.
The original glass is now unavailable so it was quite a chore to work out which methods would get us a close match. After multiple trials of methods, including testing glass, painted enamels, silver staining, taking, and etching methods we were able to supply new hexagons to replace the damaged ones.
The wonderful old building was originally the first Midland Bank, in New Street Birmingham, and opened in 1836. It is such a beautiful stained glass domed skylight, and we are proud to be able to help maintain the buildings heritage.
