This is a beautiful antique Gothic Revival stained glass fragment. It was once part of an 1880s church window. The piece depicts a tower with lit and latticed windows, set high upon an ornate column. There is a fairytale quality about this piece that I love, it is reminiscent of Rapunzel's tower.

It is hand painted by a Victorian artisan the skill can be seen in the foliage at the base of the column; so beautifully rendered. The colours are attractive ~ silvery grey, deep and pale yellows, pale gold, black and brown. When illuminated from the front, the dark colours show as a deep blood red.

The colours, motifs and design are inspired by medieval Gothic ornamentation (1100-1500) ~ the early illuminated sacred manuscripts and the architecture of the middle ages ~ the royal palaces and castles with their towers and columns. The Gothic Revival was about drawing on the past as a way of bringing romanticism back into the sombre Victorian years and this is a lovely example of that; it is a romantic piece.

CONDITION ~ This piece is in excellent condition for its age.
DIMENSIONS ~ It measures 3 1/2 inches x 5 1/2 inches.

As you can see the piece looks attractive in both direct and indirect light. The muted colours that are brought out by indirect light are lovely. On a window ledge it illuminates beautifully and is reminiscent of castle window motifs. The stained glass has been leaded recently and includes a copper hanging loop to enable it to be hung in or close to a window. Or it can be lit by candle or lamp. It comes complete with black satin ribbon and lovingly gift wrapped.

This piece of English architectural history would make a lovely addition to a vintage-inspired window, room or display, or as part of a collection of coloured or stained glass, or a special gift for a princess / prince.
