Fun Fact

This window incorporates layered pieces of glass, producing shadows and creating a multidimensional quality.

Description

In this window commissioned for the Howell Hinds house around 1900, thousands of richly colored glass pieces have been arranged and layered to paint an idyllic three-dimensional scene that would have warmly glowed in the afternoon sunlight. Located at 2200 Overlook Road in Cleveland, Ohio, the house was demolished in 1930 in a similar fate as other nearby estates. Photographs show the placement of the window in the drawing room next to the fireplace as well as the opulent interiors Louis Comfort Tiffany designed for the library and dining room.
