Episode 5

Handle with Care: Stained Glass and Burleigh Crockery

This month we are showing you our delicates! Glasgow may have been the ‘second city of the Empire’ but you could also say it was the ‘first city of stained glass.’ What was a day in the life of Stephen Adam, Mackintosh’s stained glass man, like? Why didn’t his business pass to his son and how did that decision lead all the way to our 21st century stained glass restorer Brian Hutchison? Also, Isabella talks about Miss Cranston’s favourite crockery, Willow Burleighware, and we ponder some strange Victorian drinking devices.
