We have over 35 years' experience in stained glass conservation ranging from rare medieval panels to large Victorian Studio windows. Working to the CVMA Guidelines and the ICON code of conduct we firmly believe in 'As much as is necessary but as little as possible' in terms of interventive treatments.
The images show before and after conservation of two of the large collection of Flemish
17th Century decorated quarries that formed Lord Gort’s Stained glass collection when
the family owned the hall.
Having fallen into disrepair the hall was purchased by Mr Steven Spry and has now been
restored to a high standard.
Iona Art Glass Ltd was engaged to assess and carry out conservation work to the glass
collection involving reinstatement of lost areas, removal of ugly strap leads where
possible and re-setting in new backgrounds using much of the plain antique glass from
the early 20th century installation.
