Throwback Thursday – Tiffany Surprises in Chicagoland!

stained-glass-tiffany

Here is a re-post from last March; what a masterpiece of Tiffany glass!

Will wonders never cease!Β  Feast your eyes on this magnificent Tiffany (yes, THAT Tiffany) stained glass creation! This stained glass window is at least eight feet tall! How do I know this? Why, on my wanderings of our fair city and suburbs, I was in Evanston, Illinois (home of actors John Cusack of 80’s teen movies fame, and Jeremy Piven who plays, “Mr. Selfridge” in the Masterpiece Theatre’s series entitled, well, “Mr. Selfridge”) when I came upon this enchanting artwork and snapped a photo.

At first I thought, wow, this sure is a fancy building! But after some sleuthing, I discovered that the gentleman who owns this particular old and charming building happens to be a collector of Tiffany stained glass windows, among other notables.

        Teri, when I first saw it, I had no idea it was a Tiffany piece. In fact, it’s in a foyer, but there isn’t too much fanfare about it! Wow! Cher xo

    many many people don’t know about Tiffany’s connection to stained glass, I didn’t even know about it until a couple of years back πŸ˜€

      *LOL* *grin* John Cusack’s family still lives here; well, a lot of them I believe. Jeremy Piven’s mother runs a theater school in Evanston, and I think John Cusack’s mother is on their Board of Directors. But my yes, that glass, wow! Thank YOU, dear Donna! Cher xo

    It’s a magnificent piece of art Cher. I love the way the colours merge in to one another giving it an almost mystical look. Wonderful!
