Mending a window; a stained glass window

One of the great things about stained glass windows is that if your delightful child, dog, beloved relative; have suddenly taken leave of their senses and played an excited game of total pandemonium, causing at least two small panes of stained glass to break, we can mend this. As long as the rest of the window is intact, and the leadwork is still strong, small pieces of stained glass can be removed and replaced. Like a fine piece of needlework, the lead can be opened and then the glass can be replaced. This does not work so well when the football has pounded into the door and the whole window has been pushed out like a small bubble. But even this can be repaired. Taking the whole window out the lead can be taken away and replaced with modern lead, making it as good as new.
