                                                   'LE CHIEN VERT' stained glass

The conservation-restoration of ‘Le Chien Vert' stained glass was commissioned by the Municipal council of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre.

THIS STAINED GLASSCEXHIBITED VARIOUS WEAKNESSES :
- the lead profiles were brittle (torn in various places)
- the stained glass had sunk and buckled
- many glass calibres were broken or missing
- the exotic wood framework had become slightly distorted at the base (arched) and the seams had become
                                                                     

 

TREATMENTS UNDERTAKEN :
- The stained glass window was cleaned, all traces of lead came were traced on the plan and the lead
  profiles removed (given their current state of repair, none could be preserved).
- The broken glass calibres were reassembled with glue and the missing glass calibres were replaced by
  new ones identical to the originals (old glass).
- The templates were inserted using new lead of the same size and calibre as the originals.
- The glass calibres were inserted in new lead identical to the original lead profiles.
- The wooden frame was dismantled and then glued back together.
