         I'm not sure if you can help us or not but; we are looking for 1 amber color or 2 pieces of matching colored glass circa 1880s to replace 1 that is cracked badly in a door that we are going to be putting on our house. We have asked the few glass people we know locally but don't know who else to contact. Since we only buy and sell antique hardware but do not buy or repair stained glass windows I thought I would turn to you. If you do not have any of this glass yourself but may know someone who may, we would appreciate it if you would point us toward them.
         The glass looks look like it could be little triangles fused onto glass but we have been told they were probably pressed into the hot glass. The edges are not sharp. I wonder if you can sell us some of this if you have any? If you do not have any right now can you tell us where we might find some old colored glass like this. Or if you know how / if they can be made, can you help find us someone who can replicate them?
         The pictures we have posted are about as good as it gets short of an actual piece in your hands. From the back it is not perfectly flat. It appears that each raised triangle on the front has a slight dip in the center on the back (the flatter side) as if it was poured onto the pattern and sunk at the highest points. The thickness seems to be no more than 1/16" and no less than 3/32" The triangles do have a definite shape and feel to them but the edges are subtly rounded so as not to be sharp.
        
We now only need 1 small piece in amber as we have found the others thanks to a great guy in the Chicago area .

        The Amber glass needed is 4-1/8" wide and almost 10-3/4" exactly. It cannot be larger as all pieces are very snug in the frame. It would not hurt to be 1/16" shy but cannot be more as tolerances are close.
If we cannot find 1 in Amber, 2 in any other color except purple or clear will work as long as they are matching. We prefer 1 in Amber, or 2 in Green or 2 in Blue etc. but we are open to other color options.
These are pictures of some of the glass, ideally we would like old glass. If it can be made new like the old, that is ok too. Ideally we would like the exact size needed but they can also be larger pieces that we can have it cut but we may need to buy some extra to allow for mistakes.             
Thanking you in advance ~~Steve & Connie Robinson
