Bewley’s Oriental Café, Grafton Street, Dublin


Bewley’s café has six windows that were designed by Harry in 1927 and completed in 1928. Harry was actively involved in part of the window’s execution while some sections were executed under his supervision in his Studio (Bowe, Caron, and Wynne: 1988).

The main wall of the café contains four decorative windows. The windows are lightly coated clear glass and are decorated with small butterflies, flowers, exotic birds and colourful sea creatures.
