An impressive stained glass window in the stairwell of an architect designed home dating from 1912. The torch and wreath motifs are popular during the Edwardian period (1901-1910), but it is unusual to find an asymmetrical design with non-matching design elements.
A simpler staircase window in a contractor built house from 1912, composed of just two colours of glass, set into a clear field.
A slightly more complicated design for a window from c1910. This is set high into a wall over a piece of furniture, hence its name of a ‘piano window’. The field glass is of a type known as ‘glue-chip’ glass.
A beautiful stained and leaded window in the English Arts & Crafts style, using clear glass and green ‘bottle’ glass rondels. This window is in a house designed by the prominent British Columbia architect Samuel Maclure. The design is directed by the shape of the available coloured glass.
