Description: This one is just plain crazy, but a fun crazy. I don't know what it represents, but it certainly means something. The whole window is original, including the painted and fired 'rays' radiating out from the orb(?), sphere, or sun(?).

The purple/violet streaked field glass is intense, which these images may not convey. The glass selections are uncommonly sophisticated. After owning so many thousands of windows, I've come to seek out the unusual. This one certainly fits that category, but I didn't buy for that reason, rather I bought it because it is strikingly beautiful. Seeing it in person, your eyes reveal the artist's wisdom in using this bold color palette, even in diminished light. The blue-green granite border glass was made by the Kokomo Art Glass Company of Kokomo, Indiana. The granite lends strong texture and presence.

Wonderful untouched condition. The window retains its original iron frame.
