From all of us here at Coriander Stained Glass we hope you’ve had a lovely, relaxing weekend, with at least a little bit of sunshine!  We’ve a few projects to share with you today of some more work we’ve completed for Hampton Court Palace.

We have restored this traditional lead light in the Georgian House, which is one of the properties the palace lets out to visitors via the Landmark Trust.  This is the second restoration we have carried out in the Georgian House.

Hampton Court Palace, The Georgian House

Built in 1719 The Georgian House was originally the kitchens for George, Prince of Wales.  Now a stunning house with views of the Palace and its’ own walled garden, this alternative retreat sleeps 8 and pets are welcome.

Founded in 1965 the Landmark Trust charity was established “to rescue historic and architecturally interesting buildings and their surroundings from neglect and, when restored, to give them new life by letting them as places to experience for holidays”.

To find out more about the Landmark Trust charity take a look at their website.

Our work for Hampton Court Palace is on going, and you can find more examples of projects we’ve carried out for them on our page dedicated to restoration work at Hampton Court Palace.

This second shot shows a rebuilt lead light in Fountain Court, Hampton Court Palace.

Hampton Court Palace, Fountain Court

Fountain Court was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and now the interior contains stately rooms and galleries, including the Cartoon Gallery on the south side of the court.

Helping to maintain our British heritage is something we are incredibly proud of and we will continue to share with you any further work we carry out for Hampton Court Palace.

That’s it from us today but check back later in the week for more of our latest projects.   If you’re looking for some inspiration and ideas for a piece of stained glass for your own home, be sure to check out our stained glass portfolio. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Here at Coriander Stained Glass we are very pleased to update you with our latest piece of work, for Hampton Court Palace.

This picture shows two diamond panels that we have stripped and rebuilt into new lead light structures using the old glass, which was probably two to three hundred years old.

New frames have been made by the joiners at Hampton Court, the picture was taken in their workshop at the Palace.
