Henry E. Sharp was a nineteenth-century American stained glass maker active with William Steele from c.1850 to c.1897.[1]

Sharp established himself with Steele as a glass stainer at offices at 216 Sixth Avenue.[1]

Like much of the mid-nineteenth-century American stained glass produced in and around Broadway in Manhattan, the stained glass window designs featured full-length painted figures in ornate Gothic canopies, all executed with rich colors.[1]
