PANEL C 1908
For those of you who read this blog consistently, you know I am a fan of the Morse Museum. The Morse is in the college town of Winter Park, Fl. They have an extensive collection of Tiffany art work.
This is part of the collection that was feature in this month’s newsletter. The panel was originally the center piece of a 10-panel window designed for the landing of a massive marble staircase in the Pittsburg home Of Richard B. Mellon. The panel was divided up when the 60-room house was demolished in 1940.
The piece is done totally in opalescent glass. It must have been a remarkable sight at the top of the equally remarkable marble staircase.
