This is a stained glass panel featuring depression glass pink plates recycled into an original yet vintage stained glass window treatment valance or transom! The stained glass window panel features Hocking Glass Company saucers in the Coronation pattern. Perfect adornment for a kitchen window, this pattern was produced from 1936 through the 1940.
The saucers are cradled in white wispy iridescent glass that shimmers in low light with decorative soldering to complete the look. Destined to be a family heirloom, perhaps mom (or grandmom) used pieces such as this for Sunday dinners!
From The National Depression Glass Association: "In the mid 1930's, the eyes of the world were turned toward England. King George V died in January of 1936 leaving two sons: Edward VIII, who was next in line for the throne, and George. Edward became king, but stunned the world 11 months later by renouncing the throne in favor of American divorcee, Wallis Simpson. It was not until May 1937 that England's new king, George VI, finally ascended the throne. Using America's obsession with the monarchy to their advantage, Hocking cleverly named one of the new glass patterns of 1936, Coronation."
This is an original design featuring the typical heavily textured glass items of the day. Photos really don't capture the fine ribs of the Coronation plates, so it's difficult to see how the sunlight enhances the pattern and color. Along with rainbow-making iridescent glass and shimmering cabochons, this panel is a real eye catcher!
Measuring approximately 24 x 9 there are rings attached for hanging either horizontally or vertically.
