I am working on a restoration project in Denver that has several painted windows with the signature of A J Larscheid of Minneapolis, Minn. We recently finished a church restoration in Nebraska that has the same leaded glass pattern, exact same glass, exact same tinned brass overlays. The church in Nebraska did not have any of Larscheid's painted work. In out present project one of the windows with his signature had been reduced in width which removed part of his signature. I have seen his signature on windows in other locations. Does anyone know if he or the studio that he worked for had a line of painted religious scenes that were sold to other studios?

In Ancestry.com, the US census' lists a large family in Minneapolis with a Frank and an Albert (five years younger) as Larscheid sons.......further census has both of them married, and both are listed as...... artists.


The 1920 census in Minneapolis has a Frank E. as head of a large family, occupation as an artist working at home.

1930 census......he is listed as ecclesiastical artist.

Albert in 1930 census (married with family).......listed as Artist, in general practice.

On line there is a lot of mention of Minneapolis College of Art and Design.....formed in 1886, more or less....so, this is probably where they were trained....

but to answer your direct question, have no idea. Neither brother is mentioned in the stained glass artist directory compiled in 2002

There was a booklet published by SGAA (I think) that had about 40 stained glass designs, religious and residential......ask SGAA if they still have them....
