Q. Can you make new leaded lights with old or antique glass?

A. Of course. Traditional leaded light specialists usually carry stocks of older glass specifically used in replacement of quarrels or even whole new panels. The cost of authentic or antique glass is however much higher than regular clear or float glass due to pure economics of volume. As a compromise therefore glass is normally graded and expensive grades are used only as a % of a panel (e.g. 1 in 4 or 6 panes).
