Art deco stained glass (3 o 3)

Art deco stained glass

Art deco became the dominant stained-glass style in New Zealand houses from around 1920 to 1940. It is typified by a lack of coloured glass, more straight lines, symmetry and the use of bevelled glass. This symmetry seems to have been too much for the craftsman as he has made a deliberate mistake – in the top right corner a quarter circle curves inwards instead of outwards.
