Morse Museum, Winter Park Florida

The Morse Museum is known internationally for its collection of the works of american artist and designer, Louis C. Tiffany. The scope of the collection seen here extends from leaded glass lamps to unique windows. It includes the chapel interior he created for the World's Columbian Expo in Chicago in 1893. The collection also includes objects and architectural elements from Tiffany's Long Island estat

The chapel is breathtaking.

Hundred of thousands mosiac tiles, jewels, pillars, stained glass. A baptismal font.

Stain glass pieces from his estate.

The daffodil terrace pillars were lovely.

Surprisingly, there was very little jewelry.

A lovely afternoon outing. I would highly recommend a visit if you are in the area.
Of course, we had to walk Park Avenue, visit a few shops and make a stop at the french bakery. Brought morsels of goodness for dessert.

Winter Park is a great stop.
