Here, we have an interesting window to show. The stained glass we have fitted into this Edwardian front door in SW20 replicates the original design in this conservation area, we were able to use some of the old stained glass and mixed it with reproduction glass to create new traditional panels in the old door that fits the character of the house and marrys to other glass in the street.

This week on the Coriander Stained Glass blog, we have some recent Art Deco/1930’s projects to share.
This is a 1930’s design we recently made and fitted in Morden, Surrey:
This is a front door panel in Sheen, London which has recently been restored:
These are internal borrowed lights made decorative with a stained glass 1930s fan design, to maximise the amount of light passing through we used a background of clear glass. 3 of these we recently made and fitted in a home in Thames Ditton, Surrey:
Welcome back to the Coriander Stained Glass blog.
We hope you have had a good Summer. However it is soon to come to an end and we could not be more excited for Autumn and the projects to come! This is our latest Victorian style stained glass front entrance fitted yesterday in a home in Wimbledon SW19.
These are two restored Victorian door panels in St. Margarets, Twickenham.
To view more Victorian Stained Glass projects, please take a look at our Victorian Stained Glass page.
This is a new Edwardian Stained Glass front entrance in Southfields, London, SW18. More Edwardian Stained Glass projects can be found in our Edwardian/Art Nouveau Stained Glass page.
This is our latest completed church restoration at st stephens church in twickenham. This beautiful stained glass window received substantial damage, at our wimbledon studio we striped the panel of its lead structure, around 20% of the painted glass was broken, so in the traditional way way we copied the broken fired paintings and completely rebuilt the lead light structure.
This week at Coriander Stained Glass we have been busy restoring two Edwardian front entrances in Wimbledon Park to their former glory. The stained glass has been replaced, replicating the original designs and glass that would have been used when the houses were built.
Also this week we have been working on a design template for a beautiful picture window representing a view in Brittany.
Thank you for visiting, and don’t forget to check out our regularly updated Stained Glass Portfolio for more examples of our work.
Here at Coriander Stained Glass we’ve been keeping busy with a number of projects, a few of which we are going to share with you today.
This is an internal door in a beautiful Edwardian home in Long Ditton, Surrey . The original lead structure over the decades had weakened and there is only one way of resolving this. The lead light must be taken apart and the lead structure replaced, which is what we did with all twelve of these panels. This process also cleans the glass very effectively so that it shines and glistens. This piece works particularly well for an internal door because of its’ placement within the home, you can see in the photograph that it is in a place that allows natural light to pass through it and creates a wonderful transition between rooms.

This next set of pictures shows a beautiful set of Victorian geometric stained glass we have recently fitted in a home in Wimbledon, South West London. Features typical of the era include the ruby red border, the geometric shapes, and the pastel shades used for the background glass.
Stained glass completely transforms the entrance of a home, creating an impressive, decorative main character feature and opens up what is otherwise usually a quite dull space.
If you’re looking for inspiration for a piece of stained glass for your own home, there are lots of beautiful examples to be found in our stained glass portfolio. You can opt for a design that is traditional and in keeping with the properties in your area, or we can design you something completely bespoke from a drawing or your favourite picture.
