Item Notes: THIS ITEM IS NOW SOLD

These splendid looking glass panaes were removed from 'The Victory' public houses' ceiling in 2005. There was a danger of them falling so they were removed by a salvage team. Unfortunately several were broken across the corner during this delicate operation and further several were broken by me which nearly reduced me to tears. They wiegh about 50kgs each and measure a good four feet square. The glass is old rippled type of about 1/2 inch thick and the design which varies slightly on one set of 6 to the other set of 6 is painted on both sides. They could if absolutely needed to be, remade in the same fashion to replace the broken ones, at a cost. These would make a super back drop to any large nautical design project. There are seven in good condition Nile, St Vincent, Baltic, Santacruz, Alexandria, West indies and the Bay of Naples. With a broken corner are Trafalgar and Cape Ushant. Totally broken are Siege of Bastia, Cadiz and Copenhagen. As far as I know they were installed into 'The Victory'  near after 1805 but I am still trying to verify this fact.
