This video tour includes some good closeups of the figural windows and details in St Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Basilica in Chattanooga, Tenn. The church is on the Nat'l Register and believes the windows to be Tiffany windows, but I would never have thought they were Tiffany. Has anyone seen these in person?
Now lets try and educate the folks in Chattanoogo, Tennessee about the windows at their St. Peter/Paul church. Are any of these windows signed? There is mention in Duncan's book , p. 223. Memorial window, "Scenes from Life of St. Peter and Paul". I will be away for several days so will anxiously await additional comments.
I am told (if I understand the correspondence correctly) that the windows are not signed. They are indeed very odd but "everyone" says they are by Tiffany, and they are on Tiffany's 1910 list (so not just in Duncan's 1980 version of the list). But there are entries in Tiffany's 1910 list which in the end seem to have been made by other people (so I guess in some cases these were commissions that fell through). Some contemporary documentation would be nice, of course. The article and accompanying video claim that the windows date to 1890 (like the building).
the painted faces do not resemble any known artist for the Tiffany Studio....they look somewhat amateurish....but there is a church in Detroit with Tiffany windows, apparently designed by the minister, that would not fall into a known category of Tiffany windows. Perhaps the local historical society there might have additional documentation??
