This chapter examines a few of the glass painting operations and assesses their significance within the early Victorian market for stained glass. It illustrates whether Thomas Willement's glass was installed in ecclesiastical or secular contexts. William Wailes ran the most successful stained glass studio in early Victorian England. John Hardman was the only glass-painter allowed to exhibit in the Medieval Court and he was the only Englishman to win a prize medal for stained glass. There is some basis for suspecting that William Warrington was prejudiced against Wailes, and this too can be traced to the lower prices that Wailes charged for his glass. James Henry Nixon worked on the restoration of the famous medieval stained glass at St Neots in Cornwall as early as 1829. Eighteenth-century Gothic did, in fact, create considerable enthusiasm for stained glass.
