During my trip to New York City, Bill and I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art specifically to see the Frank Lloyd Wright Room installed there—for two reasons: one to see the room but also Bill owns two stained glass windows from the same house!!!
It's the Living Room of the 1921, Francis W. Little Summer House (Little Residence II) of Wayzata, Minnesota, called Northome. (Mr. Wright always named his houses.) (The Little's first Wright house was 1904, in Racine, Wisconsin.)
The room is large and grand.
Bill's windows are inherited from Lewis Muller, his architectural partner. Lewis got them in 1996 at a Christie's auction. The two windows were $16,000. They are of the tall, narrow-type located at the end of a row of windows. Bill believes they are from the Dining Room.

When we got home, I photographed Bill's windows:
