The Cross House
The second-floor sewing room at the Cross House has, like almost all the rooms, stained-glass transom windows. There are 42 such windows in the house, which is remarkable. Astonishing, really. When I first purchased the house I thought all the windows were in situ but then realized that there had originally been 43 stained-glass windows.
One had gone missing!
The errant window was in the sewing room, was the east transom, and overlooked the sleeping porch. When the porch was later enclosed the east window was transformed into a door and, thus, the 43rd stained-glass transom vanished.
The pair of south transom windows remained, as did the west transom. It is highly likely that the missing east transom matched the extant west transom.
As part of the 2017 Heritage Trust Fund Grant, the three remaining stained-glass transoms have been restored! And the restored west transom is being used as a template to recreate the lost east transom!
