What is Federation Stained Glass?

Federation architecture is the architectural style in Australia that was prevalent from around 1890 to 1915.

The name refers to the Federation of Australia on 1 January 1901, when the Australian colonies collectively became the Commonwealth of Australia.

The architectural style had antecedents in the Queen Anne style and Edwardian style of the United Kingdom, combined with various other influences like the Arts and Crafts style. [source Wikipedia]

Federation styled houses are very prevalent in the suburbs of Australia’s major capitol cities and rural towns.

Such properties are prized by their owners and commonly renovated to match their former beauty.

A key component in the restoration of federation style properties is the stained and leadlight glass in windows and doors.

As you can imagine TSG have repaired and re-created many federation stained glass windows and are well-respected experts in this craft.
