DETAILS: Stained Glass Edition

Introducing a new series, Details, that will zoom in on examples of hidden-in-plain-sight local beauty. We begin with some window panes on No. 25, Tudor City's stained-glass Valhalla. Today the windows of the pre-school, they originally lined the Coffee House.

Much of Tudor City's stained glass depicts symbolic heraldic figures, and this selection includes a knight (symbol of protection), a pair of shields bearing a falcon (power) and Tudor Rose (England), along with a grapevine (fertility).

More Coffee House stained glass here.
