This is the stained glass in a church in Petoskey, Michigan.......a 4 church tour as part of a historic preservation conference.....several folks felt the Annunciation window with the 2 angels could be a Tiffany......I disagreed vehemently as the leaves on the left are heavily painted, and the hair/faces of the angels are not the "hand" of any artists who worked for Tiffany, at least that I am familiar with.

Now that I am home, will try and research the windows to find the makers.......

here are the windows at the Temple......close examination shows copper foil technique.....also thought all the glass was opalescent, but close examination show the blue border is transparent glass, but the exterior protective glass is textured...which gave the window a "different" look. Blue flashed glass.......
