The Ascension Window at the Halim Time and Glass Museum

Cameel Halim

Cameel Halim is the founder and owner of the Halim Time and Glass Museum in Evanston, Illinois. Under the leadership of Cameel Halim, the museum has acquired 1,100 rare and valuable clocks, many older than 300 years, as well as 80 stained glass pieces, some as high as 25 feet.

The Ascension window by LC Tiffany is, in fact, one of the museum’s newest acquisitions. Constructed in 1896, the 3-ton stained-glass window consists of more than 27,000 pieces of glass layered into five levels. The piece spent more than 150 years at the Trinity Episcopal Church in Newark, Ohio, before the church was forced to cease operations due to structural damage. The Ascension window, however, was salvaged and now stands as one of the most visually arresting, unique pieces at the Halim Time and Glass Museum.
