The Collection

We are currently making plans to develop a new full online collections search. In the meantime you can Browse The Stained Glass Museum's Collection although not all of the collection is included in this catalogue. For up-to-date informaton about objects in the Museum's collection, please contact us.


The Stained Glass Museum's Collection includes over 1,000 stained glass panels from both religious and secular buildings, from all parts of the British Isles. In addition to the many completed stained glass panels and windows, the Museum has a number of smaller trial-pieces of stained and painted glass, fragments and samples of glass material, many of which derived from artists' studios.

Preparatory Designs, Cartoons, Maquettes

The Museum has a small but significant collection of preparatory designs, cartoons and maquettes relating to nineteenth- and twentieth-century stained glass. These designs are sometimes displayed as part of temporary exhibitions.

Tools, materials and other miscellaneous objects

The Museum also has a collection of tools and materials related to the design and manufacture of glass, lead and stained glass windows. Many of these are on display in the main gallery.

The Stained Glass Museum continues to collect stained glass and associated materials and develop its collections. For more information view our Collections Development Policy.
