An IT company is moving into a mid-19th century building in the Park Circus area of Glasgow and needs to have the window on the half landing from the ground to first floor repaired.

The difficulty is to get yellow glass to match the borders of this window. There are two main shades of yellow and a few variations - all in a seedy glass. Seedy is a term for intentional bubbles in the glass. Various manufacturers have different ways of getting the bubbles. I am told by the people at English Antique Glass that they throw a potato into the pot just before gathering the glass to blow.
I have looked through my glass stocks and samples and have found one yellow seedy that will match.
For the other shades I will have to stain some clear seedy to get a good match.

Of course, there is no easy way to do the repairs from the outside without incurring large charges for scaffolding.
