Montsalvat window

Inspired by the famous carved stone and stained glass windows in the Great Hall of Montsalvat, these windows were originally a part of the Royal Insurance Building in Collins Steet, Melbourne which was demolished in the 1930s. Saved from the wreckers, the windows were transported to Eltham and became a defining element of the Great Hall and Upper Gallery. Today they feature as a backdrop to weddings, films and fashion shoots.
