Glockenspiel Doors

The entrance to a German restaurant, the Glockenspiel, on west 7th. The doors look pretty old, but the stained glass appears to be pretty contemporary. What do you think? I should go back to see if they have added any wreaths.

  5. I think those doors look lovely.

    It was once my desire to work in stained glass. I tried it and discovered that it's a lot like quilting - one must be exact and precise. I resisted paying so much attention to the detail.

    So now I just admire the work of others.

  7. I like the doors itself without any wreath. but i guess depending on what kind of wreath, it might just blend in nicely.

  8. I love the wooden doors...they have strength and substance. Like you, I suspect the glass is relatively new. My sister did something similiar on her front door.
