218: Magnificent Tiffany Stained Glass Window.
This impressive window presents the Cedar Tree as its most prominent element of the landscape. The trees are made from very fine Tiffany glass: it is of dark green color and displays some blue mottles and a few streaks of blue glass. The lower portion of the tree, including its trunk, are double-plated and surrounded by a blue-green shrub whose glass is rippled on the back surface. Nearby is a brownish stone path leading toward an ornamental masonry wall, also double-plated on multicolored background glass in shades of green, yellow and blue. This glass is also rippled on the back surface. Two high marble columns tend to frame the landscape. They are made from yellow and orange glass, interspersed with gray and white, giving a very natural appearance to the marble. They are double-plated with reddish-pink flowers and green leaves. Most interesting is the sky: its lower portion is gray with yellow striations and displays undulating texture in front. The middle part of the sky is slightly yellow, with contrasting bluish clouds and orange striations. The upper sky is light in color, with heavy clouds of red, blue and orange. This window has been in the same collection for 40 plus years. It came directly from original location in Minnesota from the early 1900's. The window is unsigned, but authenticated by Dr. Egon Neustadt in the 1980's. There are several very small and minor cracks in glass. A great example of Tiffany's artistic workmanship.
