 NEWSLETTERS - April 13, 2008



Our last newsletter introduced the unveiling of our most recent extraction and acquisition - the 300 foot original stained glass window designed and put together by artist, Robert Sowers, in 1960 at the JFK International Airport, American Airlines Terminal 8.  After relentlessly trying many avenues for a new home for the entire massive window, American Airlines contracted Olde Good Things to safely dismantle the window and it be made available for public resale, rather than succumb to demolition.  The window is now completely removed and is available for purchase.

Here you can see the progression of the architecturologists carefully removing the glass...

    Here you see the beginning of the extraction...                  and the ending....

Vibrant red, fading oranges as well as a light fading and cobalt blue glass... with light behind it this glass is extraordinary...



Here is a glass wall created from these fabulous panels.  This glass can now be purchased in various ways.. as seen here as a glass wall, small glass souvenir panels measuring 6.5 in. W x 8 in. - 8 in. x 8 in., 10 in. x 10 in. or 12 in. x 12 in., or as panels in frame as removed from the original window.  Call or email for details...
