Faceted glass windows at a German Lutheran church in mid-Michigan.....some of the glass had texture in it, as the tread of a tire...(not really, but textured)....as I have seen a LOT of windows, never textured like this...so...thinking the window are French, or German?? any other thoughts? thanks

Thanks to researcher at Saginaw, MI library who located an old newspaper article......faceted windows and church interior were designed by the late Richard Caemmerer, and the article mentioned Conway Universal Studio in MInnesota, that joined with Reinharts Studio in mid 1980's I have contacted them to see if there is any information as to who actually made the dalles then.....Blenko says no, Kokomo says no....where else??

I asked Crosby Willet who made the faceted glass....he has probably seen more windows that all of us put together....and he said BLENKO, without a doubt...
so another mystery solved.......many thanks to Crosby!!!
