Feed my Lambs. 1930's window in Arts & Crafts Style.
Below a circa 1894 Arts & Craft style window, designed by WG Taylor, depicts “Christ in a Cornfield”
The tracery lights contain “extensively restored” canopies originally made in the first half of the fourteenth century. It is believed that originally the five main lights would have contained a full length figure in a rich tabernacle.
The tracery of this window contains 15th century glass. The central feature is an Annunciation scene, below which are the figures of the Royal English saints: St Edmund, holding his emblematic arrow, and Edward the Confessor. They are flanked by St James the Greater and St John the Evangelist, holding a chalice containing a serpent.
The kneeling figure in the apex of the window represents an unknown donor figure, whilst ecclesiastical saints in their church vestments are depicted in the outer arches. In descending order to the left are: St Ledger (deacon), St Vincent (deacon), St Lawrence (deacon) and St Wilfred (Archbishop). In descending order to the right are St Thomas of Canterbury (Archbishop), St Martin (Bishop), St Stephen (deacon) and St Blaise (bishop).
In the small panels below the transom are a series of the Orders of Angels.
There are some very high definition pictures and more information on the windows on Norfolk Stained Glass's web site : http://www.norfolkstainedglass.co.uk/Harpley/home.shtm. click here.
