When I first saw the pair of window sashes I thougt there was no hope of restoring them. After a little rapair, Using some of the mullions from one to make a good one I cleaned off the old glass, repainted the sash and installed the old colored glass. The center lite was missing so I bought some antique glass. The next thing was to make the canniballed sash like the first one. I had a short piece of mullion saved fron another job so I put into the second sash. I was told that there were some more colored glass in a garage somewhere so I waited and waited. That was nine months ago. Finaly there was no more colored glass so I went looking for some to match the first one. I knew of a art glass place called Kits Art Glass in Fullerton CA and she was able to match the glass almost perfectly and she cut the piece to fit too. Now the two upper sash window are happily hung and you can’t tell which one has the original glass.
