    When i was a little kid, my family owned a very elaborate victorian home in a small, new england town. There was lavish, carved woodwork everywhere in that place. This is a beautiful window which was on a stairway landing and before we sold the house, we removed it and installed it in our new home - which was mod in 1972 - kind of reminescent of the brady bunch home - but built way out in the woods on a large piece of land overlooking the connecticut river. i've always loved this window for some reason. i guess it's called a leaded multi-colored bullseye stained glass window.

      Hi, ho2cultcha! Most unusual window, and one that catches ones eye immediately. So this is the stained glass window from the Victorian house? Is the central medallion representational? I really like it. I bet it is beautiful when the light plays through it.

      thank you mikkochristas11. i'm not sure what you mean by 'representational'. each of the bullseyes are blown glass w/ bubbles in the middle. not sure the accurate terms...

      Sorry about that. Didn't sleep at all last night or today because of the Belgian plaque - too excited with what Vetraio50 conjured up. And he just did it again! He is amazing. Anyway, sorry for sloppy communication!

      Observe the central medallion - white rim around a firey red 'something' with a yellow-gold center. Does the firey red "something" represent something from the real world, such as a flower blooming, or is it an abstract representation of something from the real world, such as a loving heart, or is it purely non-representational - that is, just pretty color blotches? Still not a good description, but I think that you get the point. Just thought that this is a very unusual window, and most unusual for a Victorian home! But don't worry too much about my comment. I am a chatterbox right now from sleep deprivation.

      thank you mikko. i like it alot too. some of my earliest memories are looking out this window at the big maple tree in our frontyard - and moving around to watch the distortions through the bulls eyes. i think that it is purely non-representational design - influenced by the aesthetic movement more than victorian - although to be honest, i'm not quite sure of the distinction.

      Love all the sunny colours, maybe that is what it is meant to represent! when light came throught it...:-)
