Subject/Title of Window: This is the left window of the series which depicts Shusco, an Indian conjurer who was converted to Christianity by the Reverend Ferry. The opalescent stained glass is an American technique in which designers mix multiple colors to produce a more opaque effect. Panes of glass are then layered into the design to add to the color’s depth. J & R Lamb Studios of New York, operational since 1857, are the oldest continuously operating stained glass studio in the US.

Type of Glass and Technique: Opalescent Glass

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact stainedglass@museum.msu.edu
