A TV reporter's mention of a "shot glass" in a stained glass window of a Catholic church in Troy, New York......the church representative who was interviewed did not mention the studio that made the window......to my mind, that is who they should contact as the window dates from 1940's so that studio may well be still in operation....and perhaps locally.....

The clip at that link only shows one Tiffany window, in the sanctuary (near the end of the clip). The other windows shown are in the sacristy, and it would indeed be interesting to know the maker(s)

The specific window with the shot glass looks similar to Frederick Wilson's "Supper at Emmaus" designs, e.g. this one in Fitchburg, MA:

That specific St Joseph's window can be seen here:

The supposed 1940s date surprises me a bit.

The other windows in the sacristy:

Christ Knocking at the Door:

Christ and Apostles:

Last Supper:

Communion:

Feeding the Multitude:

The ones except the "Christ Knocking" mostly look of a similar style so are possibly by the same maker.
