Is The Glass In Your Dallas Home Antique?

Antique Stained Glass On Dallas Homes

We get a lot of questions about antique stained glass here at Scottish. And we couldn’t be happier! The more people know and understand about the beginnings and nature of their stained glass windows, the more likely they are to keep it in good repair. Since stained glass is an irreplaceable treasure to society–that is a great thing. While it is difficult for us to give you all the information you need to determine whether your Dallas home’s stained glass is antique and/or valuable, below we have listed a few of the things we look for in to determine it’s age and value.

The Style Of Your Dallas Stained Glass Helps Determine If It May Be Antique

Stained glass, as it were, went through some pretty specific stylistic changes in its time here in The Americas. So, the style of your Dallas home’s stained glass window (if it is original) is a pretty good indicator. From Victorian style in the late 1800s to the Prairie Style of the early 1900s the look of your glass is a great clue to its origin

The Context Of Your Dallas Stained Glass Helps Determine If It May Be Antique

Just like the artistic style of your glass is a good way to figure out when it was built, so too is the style and age of your home. If, for instance, you live in a late 1920s bungalow, the stained glass in your home, if original, is likely the same age. It would make sense then that this stained glass is Craftsman style, Green and Green Style or Art Noveau and is probably an antique

Small Inscriptions And Signatures Could Help Determine If It May Be Antique

While not all stained glass in homes here in Dallas come with any sort of marks or signatures on or around the glass–many do. In fact, you may not have noticed them or looked for them before. However, many studios and artists in older times affixed signature plates to their work. It would be in the lower right-hand corner. Not only will this give you clues as to who made it but, its age and value as well!

The best way to know more about the stained glass in your Dallas home that you have come to love is to have a professional, like us here at Scottish Stained Glass, come do an inspection. We can help you figure out more about your glass’s rich history and how to keep something so full of Americana value looking good and intact for future generations.
