Item No. 1906
The colors in this design were selected to have the look and feel of stained glass cathedral windows.
All our Rondelles are available with engravable easels for table top display or wall hanging with engraved plates on gold chains: please specify which when ordering.
One of the design elements commonly found in cathedral glass and often mistaken for a spun Rondelle is the Roundel.
A Roundel is a round piece of glass that is either cut from the edge of a very large Rondelle or cut out of Broad Sheet flat glass.
Large Roundels (third image) were normally produced in sheet form by cutting open a blown tube of molten glass, laying it flat, then grinding and polishing both surfaces.
The resulting uniform flat surface enabled artists to paint their imagery in much higher resolution than would be possible with a spun Rondelle.
Since authentic natural imperfections are highly prized in fine art, Rondelles command a higher premium from buyers of antiquities and for building restorations.
