Ballantine & Allan

James Ballantine was born in Edinburgh in 1808. Although stained glass had not been manufactured in Scotland since the Reformation, James Ballantine decided to set up a studio in Carruber’s Close in 1837. Along with his partner George Allan he set up a company at 42 George Street specialising in supplying stained glass and house painting. James Ballantine came to the public’s attention when he won a national competition to design stained glass windows for the House of Lords.
