Antique Stained Glass (continued)

The next three pieces of antique stained glass sit in our dining room.  The Chandelier and accompanying grape and leaves window appear, at first blush, to be made by the same maker.  In fact, I bought the chandelier (which I believe dates back to the 1920’s or 1930’s) first and then, twenty five years later, came across the window.  Both come from the Northeast (Pennsylvania and Ohio, respectively) and are close enough in design to be a match.

The third item in the dining room is a stained glass fireplace screen dating to the 1880’s.

It has chunk glass and jeweled bevels intermixed on the lower right mixed with stained glass mostly on the upper left.  It sits in an ornate brass frame.   Here is some detail from the fireplace screen:

A similar piece appears on page 3 of Great Glass in American Architecture by H. Weber Wilson.
