Subject/Title of Window: Flamenco Dancer

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 Flamenco-type dancing senorita with tamborine, facing adjacent musician window. Bottom of window has 7" wide and 12" tall inset in stained glass of a classical looking urn. Details especially those in red, or enamel paint with vitreous paint detailing and shading. Many variations in glass types and coloring. Romanticized medieval/traditional Spanish theme common in pre-Depression "revivalism" in residential architecture house is Spanish eclectic revival. Rather than choose matadors, Spanish coat of arms, or other austere symbols, the iconography is lighthearted and fun-loving. The figure is in dynamic pose and one can almost hear the tamborine and clicking heels!

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.
