**In very good condition. The leading is intact and not disintegrating. All of the glass panels remain very stable and one side has metal reinforcement bars. There are four small panes of glass with a faint hairline.

The window retains its wooden frame around the outside edge which is the one it had when it was extracted from the house.

The surrounding border appears to be of a later date.

According to the Preservation Resource Center, this window was removed from one of Nicolas Cage's European properties and installed in the Garden District mansion.
