Angel with Laurel Wreath

Angel with Laurel Wreath
Tiffany, 1893

Three of the earliest Tiffany windows in the church, these windows were installed the first year the church was built. Two Victorian panels, with "I am the true vine" on the left "And ye are the branches" on the right, are surrounded by grape vines. The sweet-faced angel casts a calm glance at the congregation. The angel holds a wreath of laurel, and her robes are in olive and a soft red that casts a subtle glow into the church.

The Union Advertiser said on May 13, 1893, "A sweet faced angel in drapery of olive and soft red fills the center panel and the light falls through the three windows with a wonderful glowing effect, the subdued richness of color being remarkably harmonious and agreeable."

These three windows were given by Emmett H. Hollister in memory of her husband (1829-1871).
