A stained glass window by the American artist Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933). Tiffany was a native of New York City. He used an original process for making opalescent glass which was called "favrile." Tiffany built a factory at Cirona, New York, in 1878 to produce this glass. These stained glass windows are highly prized for use in churches.
