This Peacock Door Panel stained glass is a beautiful feature that creates a lasting impression in this entry door. If there are any stained or leaded glass windows in your home, you’re going to want to preserve them and keep them in their best condition. Fortunately, the centuries-old stained glass found in churches and other buildings around the world proves that longevity is worth the investment, so long as you leave the work to qualified professionals. If your glass cracks, fades, or chips, you don’t necessarily need to replace it. Its repair is a lot easier and more common than you think, and it will restore your glass to its stunning beauty.
When replacing broken pieces of this stained glass Peacock door panel, much care was taken to avoid causing more damage than was already present. Stained glass repair uses all the skills and special tools required for original work, in addition to an extra dose of patience and a quick, steady hand with a soldering iron.
“Stained glass” can mean colored, painted or enameled glass, or glass tinted with true glass “stains.” The term refers to both colored and painted glass. “Leaded glass” refers generically to all glass assemblies held in place by lead, copper, or zinc cames.
It appears in windows, doors, ceilings, fanlights, sidelights, light fixtures, and other glazed features found in historic buildings. My DAB stained glass studio repaired this door panel. Before and when the owner of the panel installed it, there was not enough support on the stained glass piece to hold it, so we decided to add additional reinforcement to it after we got it back in place. Maybe that will keep it from coming apart.
