Large octagonal frame with 7 stained glass blueprints, signed B. Bardenhewer, 1894


Large octagonal frame with seven small stained glass blueprints by Belgian stained glass maker Bertrand Bardenhewer. Central circular blueprint signed "B. Bardenhewer, 1894." Most likely for a cathedral in Liège. Three circular pieces and four arched pieces, cut out and pasted on backing. One blueprint mentions the scale in Bardenhewer's handwriting: "Echelle de 0.10m p. metre."

Images are of saints and symbols related to the Pope Leo XIII, who was an Apostolic Nuncio (an ambassador for the Holy See) to Belgium before becoming pope and later opened a Belgian College in Rome.

Mat has some scratches, and the frame has some crumbling on a few corners. Images themselves are in excellent condition with little fading or discoloration and few if any tears or wear, although they are pasted on the backing. Measures 33.5/8 x 29.3/8 inches, and weighs 6 lbs 9.5 oz.

(See our other framed stained glass blueprint, most likely by Bardenhewer, too.)
