    If those are the original floors in the main rooms of the house, I’m impressed. Someone took pride in their work to have them still look that nice.

    A wealth of wonderful, golden, (sunburst?), highly multifaceted, jewels in that delightful, Aesthetic Period, art glass window. I don’t recall ever seeing those before. Doubt you can get those today for contemporary work. Gorgeous!

      This is my favorite type of art glass window actually. Popular mostly in the 1880s with some creep into the 90s. It’s “crazy glass” pattern with jewels as scientific America, architect and builders edition called it, is so unique and was soon replace by they symmetrical colonial revival glass that starts creeping in.
      I have many old photos that have these styles of windows from the period but sadly most of the windows in the houses that are still standing are gone probably because the style was not a classic design and went out of style. I own a few myself but they are not easy to find.

      Funny enough I saw a tulip window with jewels and crazy glass boarder just recently on eBay. Of course this one in this house is much nicer win design IMO with nicer jewels. Again those jewels you point out are beautiful and I’ve not seen that too many times.

        The Aesthetic windows are my favorites too MJ. I clipped this one a while back; and just posted it thinking you might enjoy seeing it. It’s in a VERY expensive house, much modified, in Baltimore. The house was posh but mostly unremarkable; except for this stunning bit. Hope you enjoy seeing it. Feel free to clip it. It’s one of the prettiest windows I’ve ever seen. Cheers!

          Cadiz, OH

          Just one word, Jeff: Wow!!!! The art glass window in this house too is not bad and as mentioned seems to be in the Aesthetic taste from the 1880’s. It would not surprise me to learn this house was from a decade before the 1890’s or was simply an old fashioned choice for that time. It has the “Towered Villa” look from the late 1870’s to mid 1880’s before the round towered Queen Annes took over.

    The home of Frederick Carl Buchholz (1840-1906), his wife Malinda and son Charles. Buchholz’ family immigrated in 1854 and settled in this area with many other Germans. He served in the Union Army in the Civil War and was a successful businessman at Saint Marys. Unfortunately, Fred came to a sad end when he “wandered away” from his home and his body was found weeks later in a rural snowbank. Malinda lived here into the 1920’s.

    The 1891 date seems about right – the house appears on the 1892 Sanborn map. I love the exterior which looks relatively intact, though the plan seems to have been altered (for apartments?) at some point. I wonder what the front door and entry looked like originally.

    I can’t believe there is no staircase picture? We desperately want to see that!
