Stained Glass in Wales | Gwydr Lliw yng Nghymru

Michael and Arthur O'Connor

Firm producing stained glass. Michael O'Connor (1801-67) was a native of Dublin, and worked as a heraldic painter. He moved first to Bristol, and subsequently to London in 1845, where he sustained a successful business. He was a pupil of Thomas Willement, and also collaborated with A.W.N. Pugin. Prominent among his windows are those for St Saviour's, Leeds. His work was shown at the Great Exhibition, 1851.

Arthur O'Connor (1826-73) was one of his sons, who became his partner in the firm at about that date. Another son, William Henry, joined the firm in the 1860s, as did William George Taylor (born 1822) in 1873. Taylor subsequently led the firm from 1877 as Taylor & O'Connor and then Taylor & Clifton, continuing into the early twentieth century.
