Stained Glass in Wales | Gwydr Lliw yng Nghymru

Charles Powell (1850/51-1934)

Stained glass artist and designer. Charles Powell was a junior partner in the family firm specialising in mural decoration and stained glass, of Lincoln and London. His brother W.O. Powell, the senior partner, focussed on decorative work, while Charles Powell supervised the stained glass. By about 1920 he seems to have been in sole control of his own firm, based in London. His son Christopher Charles Powell worked for the firm and was probably responsible for many of their windows from at least the 1920s, as his own work shows close continuation of the same style. This makes it difficult to know whether windows made from the mid-1920s should be attributed to one or to the other.

Charles Powell's studio was at 70 Claremont Road, Highgate, as quoted in a signature of about 1919, although in 1930 Charles Powell gave the address of his Highgate Studios at 20 Archway Road, London N19. He also styled himself as stained glass artist to HM King Edward VII.
