Tiffany Chandeliers of St. Paul's Episcopal Church

The church, built in 1827-1828, was redone in the 1890's under the auspices of the Tiffany Company. To quote its Wikipedia page:


St. Paul’s is unusual because all aspects of the design are based on a concept by the Tiffany Company: chandeliers, glass mosaics, tile work, a glass jeweled altar rail, a baptistery of wood and plaster filigree, decorative stenciling of the ceiling, walls and organ pipes, pews and support members, stunning windows by Tiffany and Tiffany artisan J.A. Holzer - indeed, nearly all interior elements. As such it is a fully integrated interior design; only four such churches done by the Tiffany Company have survived intact, and St. Paul’s is arguably the finest expression of this concept.
