Firm to fix four-storey stained-glass window
Restoration work on the historically important stained-glass window which once graced the entrance to Pegasus House will be completed and replaced by the end of June.
St Philips-based Creative Glass Works was commissioned to restore the Grade II-listed 1930s window for the building, which was once the headquarters of the Bristol Aeroplane Company.
Stretching over four floors, and depicting the mythical winged horse Pegasus, plus other figures from Greek mythology, the window was designed by South African-born artist Jan Juta.
The window – in fact 41 separate etched and painted panels – illustrates the history of Bristol aviation from 1910 to 1935 using images of aircraft designed and built by the Bristol Aeroplane Company, including the BoxKite and the Bulldog.

Each panel will be expertly cleaned to remove years of dirt and corrosion. However, seven panels are so badly damaged that they will have to be completely recreated from scratch.
Techniques of painting, etching and kiln firing, as used in the 1930s, will enable the panels to be restored as accurately as possible.
