|Occupation||Stained glass maker and manufacturer|
Sharp established himself with Steele as a glass stainer at offices at 216 Sixth Avenue.
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.
