Well the Bank Holiday weekend is fast approaching and it looks like the weather has picked up just in time!  Whilst you kick back and enjoy the sunshine we’ve got a few more projects to share with you here at Coriander Stained Glass.

Today we’re going to share with you two projects, explaining the key differences between the Edwardian and Victorian eras.

At first glance, one might mistake these two stained glass windows as being from the same era – with the same striking ruby red border and use of pastel shades in the background, it is an easy assumption to make.Victorian Stained Glass 2

What defines these two windows from one and other is what is between the borders.  The Victorian window is easily identifiable by its use of bold geometric shapes, whereas the Edwardian piece has the flowing floral design typical of its era.

The Edwardian piece features the little roundels in the smaller sections that match the glass colour of the main feature flower.

In the Victorian piece, a wider variety of blues and greens have been used and overall much bolder colours.

Both pieces have a striking effect and will add interest to your entranceway.  If you’re looking for a stained glass window to compliment the age of your home, or simply just have an idea that you’d like to create, why not take a look at our stained glass portfolio for some more ideas and inspiration to help you with your plans.
