If you post this same question on the Internet "Finding the value of stained glass" you will find several links with information on how to determine value.

  • I'm not sure you will be able to do this yourself and you may have to ask for help from an antique shop in your area.
  • Some of these windows are valuable so it would probably be worth your time (and money) to investigate before you decide to sell.
  • You may want to pay for an official appraisal even if just for insurance proposes.
  • This web site is the only one that I could find that actually specializes in stained glass but the fee starts at $59.

It is very pretty!!

In order for someone to even start to value it, there are many many variables...some of the questions that need answered are:

Is it signed and who is the artist?

Do you know how old it is? It looks newer, 1970s, but it is very hard to date something from a photo.

Are there cracks?

What is the material between the glass pieces?

Will you be selling it with the framework?

I would assume you are going to have a professional remove it for you if it is installed in your home currently. These are super tricky to get uninstalled and unless you are very experienced, they break very easily and can be totally ruined if you are not an expert in this field.

We have a good friend who is an expert and even he has broken a few in removal. They are just fragile pieces!

All of this said...
My best suggestion for your lovely piece is to contact someone in your area who does stain glass removal and repair and have them give you the value for the piece for your location and the condition of your piece.

If they love it or have a shop where they sell, maybe they can consign it for you or buy it outright. These are very challenging to sell on your own. You have to find the right person with the right size opening and that is a tough one!

Some places (like where I am) stained glass is very common and values are very low (in general unless it is by a famous person). But where you are you may be able to fetch a lot for it. Every market is totally different..so I could quote you a Pittsburgh price but you live in LA market and that would just not be accurate!

I am curious what you learn! Thanks for sharing it!! It is really pretty!!

There are many components affecting the value of a stained glass window, such as the dyes and the glass itself. Other factors are the complexity of the design and the age.

I would get it appraised by someone who is familiar with this.

This is impossible to give a value on this wonderful piece, only a expert can look at and evaluate what you have,how it is made,age,size and etc.Good luck!

This is a very beautiful and clearly older stained glass window, measures 2×2 feet without the frame and I know absolutely nothing about it; age, value, place of origin, or just what can be done with it. Hopefully everyone could give me any advice and information about this to help better my understanding and appreciation of this beautiful window. Thanks!
