Subject/Title of Window: Tiffany Chandelier

Brief Description of Subject: Since the church was originally illuminated by gas fixtures, the fourteen well-proportioned chandeliers of Victorian style are a later addition to the interior of the church. Each chandelier has an octagonal outer ring consisting of forty light bulbs. The base of each one is a large bowl-like fixture which contains four large bulbs in its interior and which is surrounded by eight glass panels. The designs on these glass panels are liturgical motifs of grapes and wheat. The glass used in the fabrication is the famous Tiffany brand. When fully illuminated, this glass emits a soft warm glow through the base as well as from the octagonal ring of lights.

Condition of Window: Restored, 1979
