Tiffany Windows

WINDOW TOURS

SELF GUIDED TOURS

We ask that guests show respect for the church and its ministries by coming to the church only during our scheduled times.  Self guided tours are available June 3rd through August 30th.  Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. during the summer.  Our summer schedule has concluded for 2019.

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.
