Period Glass

Mobile blog

I've just taken this with my phone as a reminder of the wonderful eclectic and multidisciplinary creativity of the Victorians.One such example is their use of glass. Back in the 1890's the ubiquitous technique of embossing a molten piece of rolled or cast glass superseded the use of etched glass. Apparently, my vestibule door (above) has some of the most popular patterns. I'll raise a glass to that!
