Antique Glass Door Knob Sets - Stained glass is probably one of the very most amazing varieties of glass available, and is known for the existence in lovely medieval church windows, depicting glorious scenes. Normally, stained glass is used to depict some sort of thought or symbol or picture, though it is increasingly used as an additional touch of beauty to houses and offices and straightforward ornamentation. The stained colors are much more subtle, and stained glass is even used indoors and for coffee tables.
Stained glass is created by adding metallic oxides to glass that is molten (created from melting silica with other products) and continually kept melted down inside a clay pot above a furnace. Amount and the kind of oxide added to determine the shade and blaze of colour; copper oxides result in green glass, while cobalt makes gold and blue glass makes reddish glass. The reddish color is created with less expensive compounds nowadays and produces a more brilliant reddish.
With stained glass doors getting more common, more and more companies are willing to produce and sell stained doors to your house or office. Most glass doors have largely clear (or very slightly tinted glass) with a reasonably straightforward design that requires a little stained glass for effect.
Instead, the door is mainly wood, with an inset stained glass window that adds wonderfully to the design of the door. However, if you are trying to find this type of stained glass door, I'd strongly recommend having a wooden door that is fairly elaborate either carvings on the door would add to the look stained or painted a darker shade, and also a more heavy wooden door would be greatest. This makes the glass space fit in aesthetically.
