Tiffany Windows

WINDOW TOURS

COVID-19 AND WINDOW TOURS

The church will again be open for Tiffany window tours. Please contact the church office at 716-433-5905 Ext. 104 to make arrangements for a tour. Please give us at least a week notice so that a volunteer docent can be scheduled. We are not accepting walk-in guests at this time nor are we accepting individual visitors. The suggested donation for window tours is $5.00 per person for small groups of two or three.  For larger groups, we can arrange discounted rates.  Fully vaccinated visitors are not required to wear a mask.

GROUP TOUR

We offer Group Tours year round which are by appointment only and require a minimum of 6 or more people. The group tours are offered Monday – Friday at the availability of our Window Docent.  Please contact our church office at 716-433-5905 or email lkpt1pres@aol.com to schedule group tours. We do require one week’s notice in advance. We do not wish to inconvenience any, but these tours are strictly at the availability of our Window Docent. You are welcome to attend our worship services and take a self-guided tour after the worship service has concluded!

Donations are gratefully appreciated.  We suggest $5.00 a per person but any donation is greatly appreciated.  Donations are used to support this ministry and for window maintenance. Without these donations, the church will need to cease conducting these window tours.

ABOUT THE WINDOWS

We are fortunate to have six windows that are original Tiffany windows, made by the Tiffany Company, plus six windows made of Tiffany glass. Tiffany used unusual construction techniques and effects that produced stunning results. These included: cutting the glass first, then cutting the leading; use of strong colors; layering colored glass over another colored glass; application of color in streaks or dry-brushing the color on the surface; pulling and pushing glass while it cools to produce a Drapery Glass. These techniques and effects are well represented in the wonderful windows, treasured at First Presbyterian Church.
