Yes it is me...There goes my witness protection program...Thanks Vic!

The windows at Arlington Street Church have to be some of the most well built Tiffany windows I have seen. The top sections with the figures measure approximately 5’ wide x 5’ and some 6’ high, all one panel, no support bars, but an incredible network of fins on the exterior. They have never been removed for restoration and they don’t have the slightest deflection...
And they are truly spectacular windows.

Happy New Year to everyone.

Roberto.

SORRY for blowing your cover. Next time wear a wig or something. As I recall these are copper foiled windows..is that right?

Vic,
The windows at Arlington Street Church are a combination of foil and floated lead.
