another set of UNKNOWN stained glass in greater Detroit....from a Catholic church that has been closed for several years.....very distinctive style....and NOT Willet, as Crosby did not recognize them....scroll down to the bottom to see 5 or 6 windows......

I’m pretty sure those are Milwaukee based windows..... Esser studios now Oakbrook-Esser is my guess.

As it turned out, from a Milwaukee studio...but.....
Conrad Pickel........the church found copies of letters sent along with deposit and final check......and Paul Pickel has letters, and the drawings

The new owner of this closed church in greater Detroit, Michigan would like to reuse the building by next summer....and he is offering the stained glass windows FREE....but, there will be a cost of removing from a brick surround, and of course scaffolding......these were by Conrad Pickel in the middle 1950's....

so, if YOU know of a probably Catholic church in your area that could use very interesting stained glass windows, I will try and facilitate getting in touch with the owner.,,,let me know. Thanks.
