St. Luke Episcopal Church, Smithfield, Virginia........recent article states the windows are in the Tiffany style.......I have corresponded with the church.......and suggested that the youth group try and discover who made the windows......a couple of the images that are online look to me as if they are from an English firm.

yes, I received the same yesterday which prompted the discussion on their windows.....the figural windows kind of have an English look to them....however, the closeup of the one window...gosh, looks like plastic?? look at some of the cuts....hard to believe it is glass...

Looks completely bogus to me. The reference to Tiffany is way out there, and less, looks like stained glass overlay. It is sad to see this level of scholarship with many state and city buildings.
