Eleven stained-glass Louis Comfort Tiffany windows glowed, seemingly lighted from some internal fire, like the members of the Brown Memorial Park Avenue Presbyterian Church had never seen.
The Tiffany windows are valued at about $1,800 per square foot, a church official said. That adds up to roughly between $21,600 for the smallest window, which is about 3 feet by 4 feet, to $864,000 for the two largest windows, which the church claims to be the biggest Tiffany made at 16 feet by 30 feet.
