Schnütgen Museum - Cologne

We were asked to supply storage and display frames for a batch of V&A
Stained Glass that was to go on loan to the Schnütgen Museum. Terry Bloxham, Assistant Curator travelled with these panels when they were sent for
installation. These are her photographs of the installation and display.
It is important to be aware of the conservation requirements of the stained
glass while you are designing and installing the panels. As are already protected in display frames they are
much easier to transport, handle and thus install.
After much building and assembling the whole display is ready for the
An interesting photo (to transporters of stained glass) showing the V&A
packing cases made to house the precious stained glass mounted in our frames. These packing crates were designed
and made by Glasmalerei Peters Studios of Paderborn Germany. Most of the glass in the display is priceless and all
irreplaceable. This is what it takes to do the job properly.
