A Tiffany Treasure

IMG_0513 2

One of the nice surprises for visitors to the American capital is the ability to view Washington DC through beautiful Tiffany glass. Louis Comfort Tiffany, the son of the famed jeweler, left his mark at the American Red Cross National Headquarters with his stained glass additions to the Board of Governors Hall. This three panel work harks back to the mission of the Red Cross, to help the sick and injured. The image above is the central panel depicting a cluster of knights with spears and one carrying the flag of the Red Cross.

Be sure to look for Tiffany’s artistry in glass if you ever have the chance!
