The Road To Emmaus 2
Tiffany Studios, 1915 or Later
These two windows are designed to be treated as one. They depict the "Road to Emmaus" and are dedicated to Hoel Camp and his wife, Anna. This is an excellent example of how-Tiffany could take two windows and create one theme or story frame.
It is important to note that this window makes heavy use of the copper foil technique. Note how the inscription plates and figures use lead cames to give the window structure, the remainder of the window uses the foil technique to support the various pieces of glass. An interesting feature of copper foil is that it is not waterproof. This caused the studio to add an additional layer of glass on the outside, complementing the design, to create a waterproof barrier. Windows like this have two, three, or in some cases, four layers of glass to create a viable structure for the window.
The lower right hand corner of window 8 includes Tiffany's signature. The style of this signature was used from-1915 on to verify a Tiffany window. The "drapery" effect and layered glass are especially evident in these windows.
