FIRST COME FIRST SERVED. LOCATION MONTICELLO, IOWA International buyers welcome. Buyers arrange packing and shipping. This beautiful antique stained glass church window dates prior to 1850. It is part of a larger set of church windows in a church I own. This window needs to be in a new building or church where it will well-maintained. This is a very unique depiction of the Virgin Mary. Through researching stained glass I have found no other example which even comes close to this depiction. The colors are vibrant. The exterior of the window has been protected by a covering of thick glass for the past 25 + years. I have not found the window maker yet. But consulting with stained glass experts it is a very special window of quality made by a very good studio mostly likely in the Midwest. This church was completed in 1877 but the entire set of windows came from another church as a few of the windows have been slightly modified. However, I think the church was built with this specific set of windows in mind. Measurements: about 6 ft. Width x 12 ft. Height Quarry glass A small square- or diamond-shaped pane that is colored, painted, printed or impressed with a design and used to create a regular decorative pattern in a window. In Gothic style windows, quarries are small panes of glass, usually lozenge-shaped and sometimes decorated with motifs painted in yellow (silver stain) or in brown (grisaille). Quarry is a shape that may be clear, colored, painted or stenciled; grisaille is leaded or painted or silver stained pattern on quarry shapes. One may refer to grisaille quarries, but not all quarries are grisailles. "Quarry windows were an extension of grisaille (above) windows and great favorites of fifteenth century England. The quarries were diamond shaped and individually decorated with small stained glass emblems which might include flowers, insects, leaves, and heraldic devices." - Nola Huse Tutag, Discovering Stained Glass in Detroit, Wayne State University Press, 1987, p.135 "During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries more use was made of stained and painted glass in secular buildings. This consisted in the main of square or diamond-shaped quarries each painted with some device such as a bird, an animal, a flower, or some heraldic charge. Against these quarry backgrounds were sometimes placed heraldic shields, or roundels, painted with matt and often silver stained (below)... As the century progressed these quarries were replaced by clear white glass, through which one could see an undistorted image..." - English Stained Glass, by John Baker. Harry N. Abrams, 1960, p. 227 "In the 1870 and 1872 catalogues for Cox & Son, London, most of the choices are nonfigural, with a variety of quarry designs in lattice systems of vertical or diagonal formats. Often the windows were provided with figural or pattern inserts." - Virginia Chieffo Raguin, Stained Glass: From Its Origins to the Present, 2003, p. 182 Quarry windows sometimes include pictorial mandorlas or roundels (below) set against a background of quarries.
