unusual George W. Maher art glassArchitect George W. Maher is most famously known for his exceptional Arts & Crafts style homes. The historical landmark house shown here is unusual in that it was designed by Maher in the classical Colonial style. The home is located in Evanston, IL.
The beautiful art glass panels throughout the home were in poor condition due to lack of maintenance while it was used as a local school board office. When the building was converted into luxury condominiums we restored all of the art glass.
The original metal matrix was copper plated rather than lead rather than more traditional lead and had been painted over several times. The restored windows also had to fit back into openings that had been modified to meet updated standards for insulation and maintenance.
