Hello,

I left the first two comments way back in 2013. There are different attributions to the designer of the windows, most sources say Lydia Emmet but the 1893 Architectural Record says it was her sister, Rosina Emmet. I can well believe that these windows were in Mark Twain's house, but the evidence seems inconclusive so far.
