According to Cleveland antique dealers the Market for stained Glass is very big and growing. Robert Metzger of Ohio City Antiques 3815 Lorain ave., cites what he Calls Quot a re discovery of architecture As the prime reason for their increase in popularity a new appreciation of their Beauty is developing As they become More scarce Metzger said. Around the turn of the Century he explained the windows were produced in great Quantity. Much time was put into their production to produce High Quality articles. Now that kind of Good Quality work is Seldom found he said. The fact that not Many windows Are being produced now makes them More precious. The comparative Scarcity of the windows coupled with the Rise in popularity of that Type of architecture brings High prices on the Market for the windows. Cleveland is a major Center for the stained Glass As Are Many Eastern cities said Metzger. At the time the windows were being made More people lived in the Eastern cities and More buildings using the windows were built Here. That has resulted in a big Market in the South and West for the windows he explained. Metzger said that most of the windows sold by his shop go to West coast dealers. Builders Are also major buyers of the stained Glass according to area antique dealers. Chris Olen of Century Antiques 7410 Lorain said that Many builders use them in the Thomes that they build. They can be used As windows or As room dividers in living rooms or Baths. Interior decorators and homeowners also buy them for the same reasons. Restaurants and bars Are other big buyers of the stained Glass. They Are used As windows in the buildings and to decorate wails and ceilings. Ohio City tavern and the ground round Are two of the Many businesses using the windows to decorate. Olen said much of his business comes from people buying the stained Glass for corridors and Halls in Homes and businesses. Dealers usually acquire the windows from other antique dealers or they buy them from churches who decide to part with them. The unitarian Church at e. 82nd and Euclid ave. Recently sold four of its Tiffany Glass windows for $50, x 0 each according to Metzger. Four of the windows had already been stolen and the Church found the windows too valuable to keep. But Church windows thieves May be in for a , at least in this area. Area antique dealers to a person expressed an aversion to any windows that May have come from a Church. As Chris Olen said dealers Are now reluctant to buy anything that could possibly have come from a Church. Indicted in grandsons slaying cont sued from Page 1a Chest.
