Please help with Stained Glass? ... Fused Glass
« on: March 01, 2014, 06:23:42 AM »
I posted earlier but the pictures didn't go up. so im trying again. I believe these panels are stained glass but not to sure. They seem to me to be maybe from the 1960's era but again not sure. I think they might be from an artist maybe or a manufacturer. I really don't have any clue on information regaurding these panels. Im pretty sure they used to be in an entry way next to a front door. I was thinking of selling them but wouldn't know what kind of price I should put on them. Any help with any info on these would be wonderful.

Hiya and welcome to the GMB.

These panels are fused glass, not stained. This type of work is usually done in the local glazer's workshop so they are incredibly hard to identify. Unless you discover a signature somewhere your best shot is to ask around at local glazing shops in your area - maybe someone will recognise it.

Are they signed?  Normally serious artists of this sort of thing will sign their work. 

A price would be very difficult to assign since you would first need to find someone with a front door with light panels of that size, and then find one among those who liked the design of these which may not be easy if they were not made by a well known artist since this particular design might not appeal to most people.  If not made by a well known artist I would not expect them to bring very much money.

The first and most likely place would be in a corner of the glass, etched on the glass.  The second place would be on the frame, in a corner.
