Reverse Glass Painting

I have three separate art glass items that I know nothing about. They are said to have come from an old school in my area of NJ, but I can't be sure. I don't know the age, meaning or value. Any help at all determining the before mentioned criteria would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Reverse Glass Painting

They don't look like "reverse painting on glass" to me....but the paint looks fired on....hard to see from such a distance...I want to get my nose right down close!!
I grew up in NJ....what school?
They look like they illustrate a story or proverb....but don't know what.
Lets see a closer picture.

Hey deadpoetnj,
I just noticed something. (Not sure if you're aware or not?)
When viewing your photos, there is a map to the far right section under "Photo locations", and zooming it gets purdy darn accurate on location. ;) Don't know if you plugged your/an address into Picasa or not, first time I've seen that.

I'm one to err on the side of caution on the web as far as privacy protection (fake info when registering for sites that really don't need a real name/address, e.g. online emails like hotmail, message boards or photo storage, etc.) So if you didn't mean for that address to show, might want to consider changing it to nothing or something more general, like State only. If you did put an address in and don't care who sees it, ignore me, LOL! ;D

RE: Reverse Glass Painting

Well at least I have some idea of where he got the pieces...I grew up just east of there.
