Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race 1865

A beautiful scale model of the boat used in the 1865 Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race needed new 'ends' making where sadly the glass was damaged.

The good news was that it created an opportunity for some stained glass panels.

Two new panels were made using a mix of hand made glasses in a variety of tints...

And fitted in to both ends of the case...

Oxford won the boat race by 4 lengths in a time of 21 minutes and 24 seconds. The race was considered "one of the most sensational races in this history"
