Object Description

A pair of antique acid etched glass windows depicting a traditional rural scene of farmers in a wheat field. Originating from the Netherlands, this window portrays a classical Dutch scene, showing a man using a scythe or sickle to cut the wheat while a woman gathers the harvest in the other.

A windmill stands behind her while flowers and foliage are displayed above. You can just imagine the morning light flooding through, shining on the perfectly etched glass in its stripped pine frames.

Acid Etched Glass

Often found in Victorian properties and listed buildings, acid etching – or French embossing – is a specialist, time-honoured technique developed in the mid 1800s. This skilled and labour-intensive involves applying glass with a coating which is then etched with a decorative design and exposed to acid. This exposure corrodes the glass, creating variances of texture and tone. This results in a highly decorative and artistic finish that brings elegance and beauty to any setting.

Object Condition

Good structural condition. Stripped finish, ready for application of paint, stain or wax. One has an original closing bolt.
