Window Glass Fragment, Arbroath Abbey
Vertices: 61.6kMore model information
This fragment came from one of the windows of Arbroath Abbey that were destroyed during the Scottish Reformation in the late 1500s.
The ‘stiff leaf’ pattern on this fragment of green glass is a design commonly found in ecclesiastical windows from the 1300s.
Ground glass and pigments were mixed into a paste called ‘frit’. This was painted on glass and then fired in a kiln to produce vivid colours. The edges of the glass segments were chipped so that the lead ‘came’ held them together more securely.
