And in one minute, too ! He makes it look easy: just completely deconstruct an historic window (with 76 pieces of glass
---I counted), throw away the metal, do some quick (and very neat) soldering, and presto exquisito, new window . . .

Barnsdall has some of the best glass in the FLW catalogue. Simple, elegant, not overdone.
Although Ennis has leaded glass of a later date, Barnsdall was FLW's last (executed) design with metal cames; Ennis was changed from a wood-camed design to one completely out of FLW's control. He apparently (and probably halfheartedly) approved of the Ennis designs, however.
