We are looking for old glass - Victorian. Need 10-20 panes. Sizes range from 8x10 to 10x12. Any suggestions?

This may be a dumb question, but you ARE taking about inches, right?

I have quite a bit of glass from a 1906 house in various sizes. I got the windows and saved the glass. Some is pretty darn wavy, some less so.

Where are you located at? The glass is in north AL.

For actual authentic old glass that has been salvaged, not reproduction glass, consider:

http://www.fairviewglass.com, Fairview in Maryland
