Art Deco leaded glass window circa 1928 E Pickett & Co Stained and leaded Leeds
Coloured leaded glass window panel in its original iron frame. This was an actual window light (there were four others all different) in the workshop of E Pickett & Co of Leeds (just off Crown Point Road) under which was the main window pane bearing the company name in acid etched and cut glass. Only one of the cut glass panes survived (I have it). These glasses were designed to be used as an advertisement for the skills of E Pickett & Co in their trade as leaded and stained glass merchants. This definitive Art Deco panel was made circa 1928. (although there is a small crack in one panel). E Pickett & Co were a very well respected company who were. Commissioned to supply such things to many municipal buildings and churches including Bradford and Ripon. Unfortunately progress (the system by which almost everything gets worse) meant that demand fell - to the extent that.

By 1966 they were no more - the pop scene had arrived and God bothering was out of fashion! Around this time Tetley's Brewery (just next door) took over the building and used it to house their dray horses and their own Fire department. Sadly in 2014 - in spite of being historically and architecturally interesting the building was demolished. This has happened many thousands of times in Britain - and the reason? Foreign investors (I say foreign because almost all of them are) aren't the least bit interested in our heritage.

I first saw the windows in 1995 and kept a. Eye on them until they were boarded up around 2007 - this (as usual) meant that vandals could smash them from the inside without being seen. Boarded up buildings are ALWAYS broken into! To a Pikey (feral person) seeing a building boarded up is an open invitation to rob and vandalise. When demolition started I saw my chance to rescue them - only to find almost all were smashed to smithereens. A few years ago I had plans to open a Pub and were going to use these (and a few other things of interest) in it but my Doc says my liver already looks like George Bests old one so yet.
