This is a magnificent, very rare antique stained and painted glass window, dating from the 1880’s, made by the famous William Reith Stained Glass Studios. It is signed “Wm. Reith, Artist, Philadelphia,” on the bottom right corner. The window came from the St. John Nepomucene church at the corner of 9th and Wharton St. in Philadelphia. The window features an angel, dressed in scarlet and white, holding Jesus’ crown of thorns and the inscription “I. N. R. I.,” which was posted on the Cross and stands for the Latin “Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum.” Several passion flowers, which traditionally symbolize Christ’s Passion, are also depicted on the window. Above the scene is an arched panel featuring a triad of faceted honey jewels, flanked by two five-petal flowers with centers made from rock circular amber jewels. The entire window design is surrounded by a red border, followed by a pattern of purple glass alternating with blue faceted jewels. The window, including the frame, is 102” tall and 42” wide, and is in excellent condition. There are also three other windows available, under item # NSG5-RW, # NSG11-RW, and # NSG12-RW. They came from the same church and are also made by William Reith.
