Stained glass window and concrete - Unsigned - Frameless - 1950

Father Maurice Brunau, born in 1914, was in Bizerte (Tunisia) from 1958 to 1965. Tunisia (Sfax) until 1976.
The Cathedral of Bizerte was rebuilt after WW2. Unfinished as a result of a disagreement over the height of the bell tower, which in the end was never built. In 1965 the Cathedral of Bizerte was nationalized.
My father bought this stained glass window on the construction site from the artisan who made the stained glass windows designed by Henri Martin-Granel.
I recently retired, so I had time for these two semicircles of stained glass and I found they have not been washed... since their creation? I cleaned and brushed them which allowed me to discover these two marvels representing both Christian and African characters.

    Potrebbe lasciarmi la stessa dichiarazione firmata e datata e inviarla alla mia email? Le sarei, davvero grata. Cerchi di comprendere la mia preoccupazione, in Italia sono molto severi. Grazie

    Cara signora,
    Catawiki mi ha anche chiesto un certificato di provenienza che non sono in grado di fornire.
    Quindi Catawiki mi ha chiesto di compilare un modulo intitolato "statement" con il quale ho fornito spiegazioni sull'origine di questo lotto. Pensavo che questo modulo fosse stato rilasciato con la presentazione in batch. Quindi Catawiki ha approvato la vendita del lotto.

    Rendo testimonianza dell'onore che questi pezzi provengono dall'eredità di mio padre. Mio padre viveva in Tunisia, a Sfax dal 1965 al 1975, e comprò alcune ceramiche di epoca romana che i contadini vendevano in totale libertà lungo le strade.
    Come sapete, senza dubbio, la Tunisia è molto ricca di siti romani tra gli altri Thyna a sud di Sfax.
    Nella speranza che tu prenda in considerazione questa particolare situazione, cara Signora, i miei più rispettosi saluti.
