Georgian 12 light door with obscure glass

In the Georgian period, its was only feasible to make small pieces of glass.  This was because the technology had not yet been developed.  To create larger areas of glass, several small panes were either set into leadwork, or divided with wooden Georgian glazing bar.  This elegant design has 12 pieces of glass with two decorative panels.  Georgian 12 light doors were often painted black gloss as the pigments for the paint were readily available.
