The following extract from a letter, received by me since the above was in type, from Herr Augst, of Zurich, explains how this glass came on the market. You are quite right in supposing that most of the glass is of profane origin. The panels are gifts by private persons to each other, by one town to another, &c. There must have been an enormous quantity of such glass in private and public buildings in Switzerland during the 15th-17th centuries. After the invasion of Switzerland by the French in 1798-9, and the general impoverishment of the continent after the Napoleonic war, many owners of antiquities were glad to sell them to anybody willing to buy them, and most of the Swiss glass in England was acquired at that time, viz. in the early part of this century. As regards heraldry, a knowledge of English heraldry would not be of much use in explaining the Swiss coats of arms, many of which belong to peasant families.
