Vintage & Reproduced Antique Stained Glass

Antique stained glass is one of Scottish’s specialties. Understanding the color development and techniques of stained glass that was made 50, 75, 100 and even 200 years ago takes the skill and experience on which we pride ourselves.  We have over 20 years of experience, and founder Martin Faith learned the traditional art of stained glass windows in his home of Scotland. Whether you are looking to buy a quality antique stained glass piece, or have one of your own antiques restored, we have the skills and knowledge to give you the best product possible.

We Provide Antique Stained Glass

We sell original antique stained glass window designs which we purchase and import from Scotland. We imported more than 1000 antique windows from Scotland and have slowly been placing them in appropriate homes throughout the country.  We have selected antique pieces of all styles and sizes, and when needed, restored them.  These kinds of antiques are rare, and cannot be recreated because of the unique glass styles, and because each piece is custom.

Beautiful, Authentic Stained Glass Windows

The glass pieces that we import from Scotland are all exceptionally built.  These pieces are, in some cases, over a hundred years old and they were built using different methods, and different glass for that matter, which adds historical value to each piece.

These pieces will be cherished in your family for years to come.  We have hundreds of different styles, and each is unique.  We can help you find the perfect antique addition to your home.  If you are interested in seeing our selection of original antique stained glass, please contact us and we can schedule a visit or even email you photos. We also occasionally hold auctions for our imported pieces, and all our proceeds go to charity.

Repair & Replacement Antique Stained Glass

By being able to match the colors and textures of your existing glass, we are one of the few providers able to design and build new custom stained glass that is almost indistinguishable from the original.  We understand that when working with antique replacement or restoration, it’s important to ensure quality on a different scale; keeping your pieces as original as possible.  Our skilled designers and builders have the expertise to guide you through a perfect restoration or repair.

We specialize in many styles that are in tune with antique pieces, making us very qualified to work on your replacement piece. Scottish Stained Glass is not only the leading stained glass provider in the nation, but we also use only the best quality glass on each of our windows.  You can feel confident putting your antique project in our hands, and we want to make sure that this process is an enjoyable experience for you and for your household.

Vintage & Antique Stained Glass Styles

antique stained glass family crests

In reference to stained glass, “antique” is a relative term. As an art form, stained glass dates back thousands of years to the Ancient Egyptain times. During this time, artists began experimenting with colored glass which they used to decorate pottery or create beads for jewelry. As the art of glassmaking evolved, people began discovering new and exciting ways to use it in architecture. Eventually, this led to the rise of a new era, and stained glass became a highly praised and sought after feature. Architects began incorporating ornate painted and leaded glass windows in churches, cathedrals, and homes of the wealthy. 

However, today when homeowners search for antique stained glass, they are usually not interested in these ornate, Roman-Gothic styles. Rather, what they are hoping to find is stained glass with an elegant, vintage look. In this case, there are many stained glass styles that meet these specifications and make a beautiful addition to historic and modern buildings like. Homeowners who are interested in stained glass with an antique or vintage aesthetic will appreciate the styles of Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Prairie Style, Mackintosh, and painted stained glass.

Beautiful Examples of Antique Stained Glass

If you are looking for inspiration for your design, there are many beautiful examples of antique stained glass that you can compare. Looking at different examples can help you gain an understanding of what colors and styles you like. This way, when you meet with a designer from Scottish Stained Glass, you’ll be able to give them a better idea of what you’re looking for. 

If you’re the type of person that admires craftsman style architecture or tends to gravitate towards more minimalistic design aesthetics, you may want to check out the work of Greene and Greene or Frank Lloyd Wright. These styles usually feature only two or three different colors and are beautiful without being too busy or overwhelming.

On the other hand, if you enjoy playing with color or are looking for a statement piece to add to your home, you may prefer some of the bolder, more extravagant styles of stained glass. In this case, we recommend exploring styles like Mackintosh, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco. These styles are perfect for brightening up any home and are sure to give you the authentic, vintage look you desire.
