This is an antique Gothic Revival stained glass fragment; once part of an 1800s leaded church window. It shows a classical Corinthian column, ornately decorated with gothic motifs and deep yellow and silver glazes.

The stained glass is made from a sheet of hand rolled and kiln-fired glass. It is skilfully and beautifully hand-painted by a Victorian stained glass artisan. The column is stylised in true Gothic Revival style; giving the classical form a gothic treatment. It is ornately decorated abundant foliage scrolls and Medieval motifs such as Tudor flowers inside diamond shapes and the ancient symbols of England: ~ oak leaves and acorns. The three acorns also represent the holy trinity.

The deep yellow is beautifully luminous and is made more intense by the use of silver stain and glazes in grey-brown, bronze and yellow ochre. It appears pale grey and silver when not illuminated from behind.

The colours and style 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 a romantic movement that looked back to to the ornamentation of the Gothic middle ages. This a lovely example of that drawing on the past.

This piece looks wonderful in diffused or half light, as well as full light. It is in great antique condition. The glass measures 4 by 9 inches.

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