Historic Perth County Courthouse – Stratford
A few years ago, we were chosen to restore the stained glass stairway window in the Historic Perth County Courthouse in downtown Stratford. This window was created in 1886 and is in a unique primitive folk art style featuring numerous pressed jewels and rondels. On the main landing, it is a large, arched, stained glass window with various illustrations. The semicircle itself, depicts the Canadian coat of arms of that time, representing the seven provinces. The top two panes of glass have AD. and 1886 respectively. The middle sections have illustrations of the scales of justice and crossed swords, and the bottom two sections have the coat of arms of Ontario and the coat of arms of Perth County.
