Glass & Glazing

We do a large selection of glass for your Victorian or period door.

I make leaded glass units up myself here in The Grand Victorian Workshop, they’re all unique and bespoke so if you have leaded lights to match up with or a neighbour’s, a picture off Pinterest or just an idea I can turn it into beautiful glass for your door.

We also do:

  • Etched glazing
  • Canterbury or Shrewsbury glass
  • Any Pilkington glass
  • Hand painted fan lights
  • Traditional leaded lights

How about your family crest leading on your fan light, the Manchester Bee or football team badge?

Don’t be afraid to ask the impossible!

Below, you’ll find some examples of glass we’ve done and a comprehensive display of all Pilkington decorative and patterned glass available.

Sunflower Leaded Glass
Etched Fanlight

"When I park on the driveway and see the light streaming through the leaded glass in the door
I know I'm home."

Examples of Leaded Glass

I make our leaded glass myself so I’m in complete control of the finished product. This means I can use your ideas to produce something that is as unique as you are and something that looks very authentic with the lead on the outside of the double glazed unit. If you would like to see how our leaded glass differs from traditional stained glass take a look here.

Examples of Patterned glass

All of the Pilkington patterned glass (below) is available to have as toughened double glazed units. This can be used in doors, sidelights and fanlights. You’ll recognise some of them as they have been around for decades but there are some newer ones that glazing companies may not stock as standard.

Examples of etched glass

How about something very special? Knowsley and Pilkington ‘etched’ glass is not stocked as standard by glazing companies so you may never see any of them! However, we aim to please so we can glaze your door and surround with any of it.

Examples of Fanlight numbers

As well as creating numbered fanlights using our leaded glass method we can etch numbers onto clear glass. The clear number and border on etched glass is very popular, as is an etched number and border on clear glass. And, we can use any font that you can find on Microsoft Word or by searching on the internet, we will just download the font. We can even make a fanlight for you with a hand painted number, like the number 31 below.
