Countless pieces of historic leaded glass are in danger of being lost forever due to the ravages of time and the elements. When leaded glass degrades, the glass begins to bow due to the weakening of the lead that holds it in place. This can cause the glass to rattle and expel dust, and it can also cause the lead to peel. When this occurs, a full restoration is needed to save and preserve the glass.
Selvin Glass is passionate about restoring such historic treasures to their original glory through meticulous, Old World–quality craftsmanship. Since 1999, Selvin Glass has completed hundreds of restorations, including residential, commercial, and ecclesiastical projects. Ever since owner Emily Selvin’s first leaded-glass commission for an Episcopal church, one of the company’s core missions has been to help religious and other organizations save and preserve their stained-glass windows for future generations to enjoy.
