Thanks Dawn.

This is an exquisite antique Gothic Revival stained glass fragment; once part of an 1800s church window, forming a part of its decorative border.

The piece depicts a stylised fern, hand-painted by a Victorian stained glass artisan. The array of colours are beautiful when fully illuminated: gold, ochre and cadmium yellows, grass green, hints of pink, dark red and white and creams on a dark burnt umber brown. The fern is wonderfully composed as a scrolling heart shape, edged in frilly fern leaves and punctuated at salient points by the fleur de lis and three oak leaves - symbols of France and England.

I love the way this piece appears both gothic and also contemporary in having an abstract beauty that is very painterly.The motif and design are inspired by medieval Gothic ornamentation ~ the early illuminated sacred manuscripts and the embellishments, tapestries and embroideries of the English Tudor years (1500s). The Gothic Revival was about looking back to the ornamentation of the Gothic middle ages and this is a lovely example of that drawing on the past.

This piece looks best infront of strong light. It is in great antique condition, just one small chip to a corner. The glass measures 6 1/4 by 2 3/4 inches.

This piece of English architectural history would make a lovely addition to a vintage-inspired room or display.
