How Is Leaded Glass Different than Stained Glass?
Did you know that stained glass is actually a type of leaded glass. “Leaded” refers to the lead caming used to hold the pieces of glass together to create a single panel. So, technically, all stained glass windows are leaded glass windows.
However, usually when someone uses the term “leaded glass” they mean colorless. And, of course, when they say “stained glass” they mean glass that had been dyed or painted.
