In 1857, Joseph (1833–98) and Richard Lamb (1836–1909)—the British-born sons of a landscape architect— opened a stained-glass studio in New York’s Greenwich Village. Highly successful, the firm passed to Joseph’s sons, Charles Rollinson Lamb (1860–1942) and Frederick Stymetz Lamb (1863–1928) in 1885. The company became the longest continuously running stained-glass and ecclesiastical art maker in the country and remained in the Lamb family until acquired by an employee in 1970.
