The Cedar Tree window measures 72 inches by 43 inches. The garden scene includes several other trees, as well as ivy, vines and red roses in full bloom around the base and up the sides of two massive columns. A stone path meanders toward an urn-topped wall. The overall effect is painterly, a tranquil scene rendered in delicately colored glass rather than oil paints.
"This window has been in the consignor's private collection for more than 40 years, so it's fresh to the market and will surprise many of today's collectors of Tiffany art glass," said Morphy Auctions' CEO, Dan Morphy. The window is unsigned but in the 1980s, Dr. Egon Neustadt, an expert on Tiffany, confirmed its authenticity. The late Dr. Neustadt's letter of authenticity accompanies the window, which is estimated to sell for $150,000-$250,000.
