Description: The exciting impact of this window results from a tasteful mix of harmonious, yet disparate, colors and textures, the addition of flowing bevels, hand-faceted jewels in different shades, and a superior overall design. The beveled pieces are exceptionally thick and well cut.

The stained glass is composed of hand-rolled ripples and mouth-blown Venetian Glass. Hues in the translucent glass range from amber to gold. In the opalescent glass are various shades of alabaster, bone and light brown. The “atomic” yellow-green jewels are made of what is called "Vaseline glass," and their glow tends to command your attention even from a distant night-light.

This pattern is a stylized “Pineapple” motif—an international symbol of hospitality. A modern, yet finely-crafted, oak frame compliments this outstanding window.
