Restoration – Windows at Agecroft Hall

Agecroft Hall

Agecroft Hall, now a museum, was a historic Tudor manor house located on the James River in Richmond, VA. Every window of the home is a stained glass diamond panel, a common Tudor architectural element. Due to metal fatigue and inadequate initial installation their was considerable surface deflection and breakage. Restoration of Agecroft Hall's stained glass required rebuilding every window from the entire manor. Broken glass was replaced with hand blown sheet glass.
