City: Lake Angelus

Date of Window: 1929

Subject/Title of Window: Musician

Brief Description of Subject: Spanish theme. Two stained glass insets in pale colored "mosaic" style leaded came pattern with more brightly colored border. Steel casing of windows with 9/16" lead came. 10" wide x 24" tall central inset of accordian playing musician facing adjacent window. Figure is wearing medieval style clothing. Near bottom of window is an inset of a stained glass urn, approximately 7" wide and 12" tall. Details are in vitreous paint with some enamel paint. Many variations in glass itself - streaks, bubbles, small waves, etc. are used. Romanticized medieval Spanish theme characteristic of pre-Depression residences of the wealthy class. Interesting choice of accordian musician and Spanish dancer suggests a lighter, more celebratory theme than, say a bull fighting matador or other traditionally iconography. Uncertain meaning of use of classical looking urn.
