condition

Overall very good condition. When viewed in person, the blues and purples throughout are slightly more intense and saturated compared to the catalogue illustration, making for a beautifully balanced warm and cool color palette which evokes the soft light of dusk or dawn. The window is selectively plated (layered with glass) on the reverse up to three layers of glass to heighten the visual depth of the landscape composition. Select glass tiles have been enhanced with acid etching to add further dimensionality and atmosphere to the landscape. All of the Tiffany Studios favrile glass on the front side of the window panel appears original and intact. The window with 15-20 scattered hairline cracks throughout the first layer of glass, which is to be expected considering the vast number of individual pieces of glass required to execute a window of this complexity. All of the hairlines throughout appear stable. The window with some extremely light surface soiling to the adjacent contours of the leading. The reverse with some scattered minor traces of white house paint and with some white corrosion build up concentrated to the contours adjacent to the lead caming in isolated areas. The inscription along the bottom edge is executed in came and is integral to the leaded glass design. A truly breathtaking window displaying a gorgeous composition and glass selection. The circular format is very complementary to the composition and subject and contributes to the splendor of this window. When viewing this window with remitted light, the inscription very much recedes and is not visually detracting.
