Many years ago I bought a 17" x 17" cement and stained glass block. It is a very heavy piece, with thick pieces of large and small chiseled vibrant colored glass. A small piece of glass in the lower right hand corner reads (in 4 lines) "Pierre Millous", "Chartres", "George L. Payne", "Paterson".
Can anyone tell me anything about this piece?

Thank you for any help or interest.

George Payne based in Paterson, USA., used many different artists and craftsmen to create church furnishings, he used Pierre Millous to design and make the type of window that you possess, it is called  a Dalle de Vere window, George import them from France to USA.

 

George also had traditional stained glass made in his studio in USA and also many windows designed and made by J. Wippell of Exeter, UK., until they parted company in approximately 1963.  

 

J. Wippell also supplied George with wood and stone carving and other items made of wood, vestments,  embroidered banners, gowns, candles and almost anything a church would need.  

 

George Payne had church Bells made in a Birmingham foundry and had a hand in most things for the church.

 

George Payne died sometime around 1980, I don't know what happened to Pierre Millous.

It sounds like a section of a larger faceted or Dalle window.
There is a stained glass shop in Chartres, they are fabricators of dale windows. That section came from a larger window, that was fabricated by them George Pain ran a stained glass shop in Paterson N. J. He imported stained glass, and dalle glass from England and France. He also manufactured windows at his studio designed by many free lance American designers. I sold him a small very crude design back in the 1960's. I think he only bought it to get rid of me. It helped me at the time.
I don't know if he ever fabricated it, and I never spoke to him after that or went back to Patterson. He died several years ago and some one else bought the studio and it's contents.
That is all I know about that studio.

Thank you all for your responses. I bought it about 15 years ago at a garage sale located at an old house about 35 miles north of Paterson, NJ. If I can figure out how to do it, I will upload a picture.
A small part of the cement has been damaged and I would like to have it repaired. If anyone has any suggestions as to what sort of crafts person I should be seeking for this repair I would be very grateful.
Thank you again, I am really enjoying what I have learned here!

Cassandra,
Go to that website below and you'll get some info about Millous on some of his work here in the states. Unfortunately there are not much pictures of glass. Google his name. A lot info are in French but some are in English and you might have more time than me to check it out.
http://www.utulsa.edu/sharpchapel/history.asp

Address 10 or 24 rue Chaises, 28000 Chartres France
Might be good to send him a photo and ask him which project it comes from... Never know he might remember.
He made around a hundred work for the states, worked with professor Gyorgy Kepes from MIT (Boston) and painter Theo Keng. Stained glass, dalle de verre, glass mosaic. My info dates form 1989...

Marie,
Thank you so much for this information. I have been doing some "googling" of the names, and I admit I was surprised to find the subject of stained glass to be so fascinating. I am enjoying this research very much and I am thrilled to have found this site, which has so many helpful members. I will be sure to follow up with the information you have given me.
