The next three pieces of antique stained glass sit in our dining room. The Chandelier and accompanying grape and leaves window appear, at first blush, to be made by the same maker. In fact, I bought the chandelier (which I believe dates back to the 1920’s or 1930’s) first and then, twenty five years later, came across the window. Both come from the Northeast (Pennsylvania and Ohio, respectively) and are close enough in design to be a match.
The third item in the dining room is a stained glass fireplace screen dating to the 1880’s.
It has chunk glass and jeweled bevels intermixed on the lower right mixed with stained glass mostly on the upper left. It sits in an ornate brass frame. Here is some detail from the fireplace screen:
A similar piece appears on page 3 of Great Glass in American Architecture by H. Weber Wilson.
If you love (or just like) antique stained glass, here are a few websites of dealers who I have found to have exceptional pieces:
Wooden Nickel Antiques, Cincinnati, OH http://woodennickelantiques.net/stained-glass/
Soll’s Antiques, Camden, ME https://www.ebay.com/usr/cantiq307
American Antique Stained Glass Windows, somewhere in northeastern Oregon http://www.antiqueamericanstainedglasswindows.com/
Oley Valley Architectural Antiques Inc., Denver, PA https://www.oleyvalley.com/antiques/windows-stained-beveled-glass/
I have this exact fireplace screen; inherited from my husband’s grandmother. I am so curious as to it’s origens and value. Any information is greatly appreciated.
I refer you to page 3 of Great Glass in American Architecture by H. Weber Wilson which has a similar screen. The book says it dates from the 1880’s and I believe, but cannot confirm, that there are not many (a dozen, two dozen?) in existence. As to price, you would have to scour antique stained glass sites or go to a reputable antique dealer.
You seem pleased! (scowls and chides) are you ill?!? losing your curmudgeonly bent?!? lol i like it ty for sharing it
Not to worry. The third and concluding post will restore disagreeable order.
