Original Tiffany windows installed in St James Catholic church in Chicago, in 1880, with the companion piece to the Tiffany Nativity window, also available in this auction. Church had a devastating fire in 1972 and windows remained hidden and forgotten for 47 years. Rediscovered in 2019. Tiffany's genius in the use of color, window plating, and drapery glass is all evident in this 7 window set. Multiple layers of glass, known as plating, give unique lighting shades and tones found in Tiffany's fabulous works. The drapery glass used in the robes is also unique to Tiffany's work. The quality in the faces and body shapes matches that of high end paintings. These windows will need complete restoration. The lead needs to be re-tightened and there are several cracks and missing pieces, see photos. This is a once in a lifetime chance, as these windows have never previously been offered before for sale.. Frame sized of 3 piece window section, in frame is 27" x 9'. Stand alone quatrefoil 24" x 24", unframed.
