public_access_description
The letters 'IHS', or the sacred monogram, is the contracted name of Jesus Christ in Greek - 'Iesous Christos'. In the middle of the period 1500-1600 new techniques for producing decorated glass were introduced. Glass painters used paints known as 'enamels' to paint directly onto the glass, similar to painting onto a canvas. The colours were produced by adding metallic oxides to a ground glass (frit) mixture and the resulting colour range included the delicate pinks, reds and purples shown here.
