This invention relates to a novel method of simulating" art glass work and has for its principal. object the arrangement or association of a painted glass panel with a the feature whereby the danger of the deco rative surfaces being discolored will be eliminated. r
Other objects and advantages Wlll be apparent during the course of the following description.
In the accompanying. drawings forming a part of this specification, and in which like face to the combine Figure 2 numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the same,
Figure 1 is a perspective View of theassembled' glass panels employed 1n my method, v

It is well known that in artgl'ass work, it
is necessary to emplov a plurality of varied colored pieces that when assembled consist of a composite design or picture. The leada ing of the pieces for theassembly is not only costly but oftentimes when heavy lead lines are employed the artistic appearance of the work is jeopardized.
In the present invention I propose to eliminate all danger of peeling, cracking or discoloring of j the Work, which is -often caused by the subjection of the painted surd action of the sun and am I produce by my unique method of art glass assembly aconstruction that will fur g rear panels 6 and is a front elevation of a deco- .glass can be used for the of the plate 9.
nish a greater numeral 5 designates a portion of glass that is decorated or painted by the use of transparent colors to present an attractive picture or design.
After the design has been painted on the panel 5, both the front and rear surfaces of the panel 5 are subjected to a coating of lacquer 5 and thereafter a front glass panel indlcated by the numeral 6 is made to adhere to the front surface of the panel 5.
The numeral 7 designates a rear glass panel made of plain or colored glass that is painted as indicated by the numeral 8 with a white coating or in fact any colored coating, depending upon the effect. desired to be realized.
The rear panel 7 is then applied to the rear surface of the panel 5, and it will be obvious that due to the presence of lacquer on the surface of the panel 5, the front and 7 will readily adhere thereto, thus presenting a unique. arrangement of the panels so that va 7 distinctive s-An sRAncIsco, CALIFORNIA, AssrGNon'ro'cHAs. WALTER, oi'fisen rnancrsoo, CALIFORIHAA a v method of simulating art glass work will be presented.
In practice either colored glass or plain protective covering, and this glass may likewise be of various texture, and when assembled as disclosed to advantage'in Figure 3, it has been found that a durable and inexpensive product is realized. v I In the modified form of the invention disclosed in Figure 4, the numeral 9 designates a glass panel which has painted on its rear surface as indicated by the numeral 11 a decorative design. A coating of veneer 12 isapplied to the; rear surface and thereafter a protective panel as indicated by the numeral 13, previously coated with white paint 14, is made to adhere to the rear surface 10 In this form of the invention it has been found that an extra protective panel can be eliminated if desired. 7
From the foregoing description considered in connection with the accompanying drawing, it will be evidence that I have devised a novel arrangement of glass panels whereby a distinctive product is realized that simulates in every respect art glass Work, and have produced at the same time a novel method of combining the panels so that the costly procedure of lead lines as now employed in ordinary art glass Work, is eliminated.
It is to be understood that the forms of my invention herewith shown and described are to be taken as preferred examples of the same, and that various changes relative to the shape, size, material and arrangement of parts may be resorted to Without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the subjoined claim.
Having thus described my invention, I claim The method of producing art glass Work which consists in painting a glass panel With transparent colors, applying to the front and rear surface of said panel an adhering preparation and protecting the front and rear surface of said panel by applying thereto front and rear glass panels adapted to adhere to the painted panel.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
