Pair of John Hardman Stained Glass Window Design Glass Slides Pugin c1920
Rare and decorative glass slides of stained glass designs from John Hardman surviving from the early 20th Century.
John Hardman was one of the pioneers of the stained glass revival of the nineteenth century. His Birmingham-based operation started out as an ecclesiastical metal works, but, at the suggestion of Pugin, the business expanded into glass manufacture in 1845. Pugin designed for the firm until his death in 1852 when this role passed onto his nephew John Hardman Powell. The firm was renamed John Hardman Studios in about 1939, at which time Donald Battershill Taunton (1886-1965) and Patrick Feeny (1910-1995) were designers. Able to move on from the Victorian and Edwardian Gothic Revival styles.
Not something you see every day and from such a great company. We have left the slides as found apart from a little dust over. These were designs which would have been used in the making of stained glass windows for churches.
A great addition to any collection or would look rather good mounted.
Price is for the pair delivered.
