I've just had some old windows replaced with 'lovely' double glazing
in a 1930s house. The bay window had deco style lead glass stained
windows (five - one small window above each main window) which I've
rescued from the smash happy installers.
I'm thinking of taking them to an antiques dealer that specialises in
glass, so, sight unseen, are these usually wirth around £5-10 a shot?
I doubt that the installers would be smash happy, I've seen these folk
remove them extremely carefully and offer to take them away at no charge ...
not n our house though. We wouldn't let them near us.
I've seen a dealers website near to me in Bingley and they quote a few
sales they've made...mine look like the stuff they sell for £10-£20,
so I've knocked a bit off for what the dealer would pay.
Ebay seems to have a few sold but very few buyers to really gauge the
It seems a lot get bought up and then shipped over to the USA?
Seeing ad DIYers probably have upgraded their windows and know the
value of these things, I was just looking for a ballpark
figure....do'nt want a dealer to walk off with my kid's
