Scroll down to see 2 Tiffany windows in this library in midstate New York. One article said there was a Belcher here, but I don't see one.

That first window looks like a Belcher to me (although I never found a large scale version, so it's hard to see for sure).

In hindsight, the first window is the Belcher......had to blink a few times to see it clearly.....rather large one!!

As per usual one of these "Tiffany" windows is not a Tiffany, but a Belcher. I sent them an email. Let's see if they will change their attribution on the website.

Does anyone know if the other window is a Tiffany?

The second window is very likely by Tiffany.

Tiffany's 1910 list includes an "ornamental window" in the library.

The earliest reference I have found so far which says explicitly that that second window is indeed by Tiffany is a 1907 Moffatana Bulletin. It does not say who made the first window. The article is on page 1 in the July 1907 edition (the pdf opens in April 1907 so you have to either search for Tiffany, or scroll down a bit; and they call the first window the second one and vice versa):

https://ia800604.us.archive.org/10/items/moffatanabullet00maff/moffatanabullet00maff.pdf

Some other Moffatt library webpage does mention that the first window is by Belcher. So in theory they know.

I just got this email from the library "Dear Mr. Rothman,

Thank you for letting us know. I will pass your message along to our webmaster.

Sincerely,

Matthew Thorenz
Head of Reference and Adult Services
Moffat Library of Washingtonville"
