I ran into an ad for “Old art glass” on Craig’sList…It was posted by a guy who had recently bought an old commercial building in Franklintown…the building had been the home of Oxford Art Glass, a stained glass production shop, which closed in the 70’s. The original owner likely died while he was in the middle of several secular and sacred window projects. There was half-finished work all over the shop. I came late to the party, so the pile was pretty well picked-over by the time I got there. I managed to score a small pile (large scraps mostly with over 50 different shades of blue, a good pile of painted scrap, and some bigger pieces of old clear art glass), along with some (finished) damaged panels. Here is an example of the swag: it is a damaged pair of patinated glass panels, about 6×18″. Pretty useless in their current state. Luckily, there was enough undamaged glass in the pair to allow for one good piece to emerge.
