The photos are from Donald Traser and there is one that doesn't seem to have any lead came.......all paint...the one with the flying angels/little girls.

Has anyone seen something similar? Thanks.

Vic is correct. I have seen a few Henry Sharp windows designed and painted this way. Virginia Raguin would have more information.

The Ferncliff Mausoleum dates to 1928. It looks like that was long after Sharp was active. Of course the window could be older than the building but it looks modern(ish) in style.

I did not mean to imply that the mausoleum window was by Sharp. The question was "Has anyone seen something similar?".
