Tiffany Stained Glass Window Restoration
Restoration of an original “Louis Comfort Tiffany” stained glass window, requires true experts in order to preserve the original historic art created by this master. The incredible detail he put into each window, combined with the multiple layers of plated glass, make preservation extremely challenging.
Experience counts! Our studio, Bovard Stained Glass, has preserved numerous Tiffany windows throughout the US and has won multiple Preservation awards from the Stained Glass Association of America (SGAA) for the incredible work done.
John LeFarge Stained Glass Window Restoration
Correcting bad repairs: A historic original John LeFarge window in St Luke’s Episcopal Church in East Greenwich, RI had been damaged by vandals. The small local firm hired to repair the original damage, changed the artwork from plated “opalescent glass” to painted glass. Left photo. Changing original artwork is against all preservation standards.
When routine releading was required in 2018, we worked with the congregation’s building committee, and old photos of the window before the vandal damage, to restore the window to its original artwork style. We removed the painted glass (robes) and installed plated opalescent glass to bring the artwork back as close as possible to the original.
We also restored the other 4 Chancel windows (shown below) as part of the project.
J.R. Lamb Stained Glass Window Restoration
Above: Fire damaged the historic J.R. Lamb stained glass window and frame at the Crossroads Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn, NY. Egan’s and our stained glass studio are proud to have been selected to assist the congregation with this work.
Our team of experts, using photographs of the original artwork, fabricate new stained glass to replace the missing glass, restored existing glass that could be salvaged and fabricated a new Mahogany wood frame.
