Subject: St. Elizabeth and St. Cecilia

Maker: Attributed to Louis Comfort Tiffany by Christ Church because of the window's decorative style and coloration and because one of the two sisters which the window commemorates, Laura Wheeler Tiffany, was the wife of Reverend Charles Comfort Tiffany, a second cousin of Louis Comfort Tiffany.

Date: Circa 1906

Description: The top center contains a crown.
Both panels are topped by leaves and vines. Below that on the left is a figure of St. Elizabeth in red and blue holding a basket of fruit. Her head is over a field of green leaves with red roses. On the right is a figure of St. Cecilia in blue and purple holding a pipe organ. Again, her head is over a field of grean leaves with red roses. There are captions below their feet reading repsectively "St. Elizabeth" and "St. Cecilia."
The commemoration on the bottom left reads, "Reverently in Commemoration of two sisters Julia Wheeler Tiffany 1899 and Eleanor Wheeler McClurg 1905." On the right, "Living they loved and were loved this life o'er, 'They still live, love and are loved yet far more.'"
