Roseland Cottage

South Parlor Stained Glass

Stained glass was an important element of medieval Gothic, and so it was important to the Gothic Revival, too. The stained glass in the parlors at Roseland Cottage was not part of the 1846 construction. It may have been added in the 1880s, or as early as 1860, when this kind of etching became available. This view of the garden from the house is exactly what Andrew Jackson Downing prescribed for country houses.
