The style known as art nouveau emerged in the 1890s and was seen in New Zealand stained glass design from around 1900 to 1920. This example, surrounding the front doors of a house in Duncan Street, Dunedin, was made in 1912. The style is characterised by its greater use of clear glass, simpler designs and highlighting of the lines of lead.
