I have written from time to time about the large and elegant stained glass panel created by my great grandfather, Walter Van Gilder. Today, it came home: re-leaded and refreshed by Vincent Taylor Architectural Art Glass. This summer, the panel will be installed in our dining room here in San Jose, California. Its previous homes were Knoxville, Tennessee (where it was made) and San Francisco.
Vince also spent time cleaning the large of the stained glass panel we commissioned ten years ago – it had gotten foggy on the inside.
