This is a textured glass pane out of a 24 pane, 10 foot tall church window. The church was built in the late 1800's in the small town of Greenfield, TN. I have searched the internet to try to find what the style is called but I have not been successful. The edges of the glass are not straight and some edges are very jagged (as the one I have included in the pictures). Appears they were hand cut. There are small bubbles randomly throughout the glass as if it were hand blown. One side of the glass is smooth with slight waves and the other is bumpy. I appreciate any help as to figuring out the uniqueness and value of this type of glass. Thank You, Emily Pate

Value is very subjective, and depends on what anyone is prepared to pay, assuming they have a reason to buy it in the first place - in this case, it would need to be a practical reason, rather than solely aesthetic. Your best bet would be to check out any reclamation yards in the local area and see what they're charging for panes of textured glass.

The type of glass may be referred to as table cathedral glass - from the way it is made, various different textures are available:

Thank you NaomiM and John for your response. I haven't been able to find much information on my own just by searching the web, so your feedback is very helpful.

Rolled plate is the other term used. This looks like pretty modern glass to me rather than something contemporary with the church or even 19th century
