Exclusive Antique Stained Glass with Scottish


Over the past decade at Scottish Stained Glass we have been working to restore hundreds of salvaged antique windows from all across Scotland.  These windows have come from both homes and churches and embody traditional, authentic stained glass at its beginning.  With historically beautiful designs including Mackintosh roses, these pieces are an incredible addition to any home.

Antique Stained Glass Mackintosh Roses

Rare Antique Stained Glass ColoradoSome of our most popular designs in our antique collection are those that incorporate a Mackintosh style rose, like the photo you see here.  Charles Rennie Mackintosh was a Scottish architect and designer who frequently designed stained glass windows to fit into his building designs.

In his stained glass work, he is most well-known for his roses.  They are usually small with a round border and a combination of lead lines and different shades of colors are used to emphasize different layers of a rose.  This design has always been well-loved in Scotland, and many of our antique pieces have a Mackintosh style rose in the design.

Angels in Antique Stained Glass

Angels are another common design that we found in many of our restored antique pieces.  As you can see from the window we have posted here, the angels are often an abstract design.  This particular window features a curved lead line just above the head that represents a halo, and feather-like green and yellow wings.

Traditional styles like angels usually feature many curved lines and colors to complete the look.  We also have numerous antique pieces that reflect the Art Nouveau style by using floral designs and rich curvature throughout.  No matter what styles you love when it comes to stained glass, our antique pieces offer a high level of uniqueness and historical value for any home.

Unlike our custom-built new pieces, our antique stained glass has simply been restored to its original look, so we cannot make them fit into a different sized window.  We can, however, frame them in wood if you prefer, although they still look lovely as hanging pieces without a frame.  When you hang these leaded glass pieces in front of a window at your home, natural light gives it new life, and you’ll be able to fully enjoy all of the beautiful colors used in the window.
