Four standing figures in a four-light window comprising the scene of the presentation of Christ in the Temple. Joseph and Mary are shown in the left-hand lights, and Simeon holding the Christ-child, and Anna are shown in the right-hand lights.

technique: stained glass

designer: Henry Holiday
firm/studio: James Powell & Sons

Church of St Peter, Pwllheli, Gwynedd
south wall of the south aisle (Capel Beuno)

The Powells archive records a four-light window of this date made for this church, using designs by Henry Holiday. This probably refers only to the figures, as Holiday eschewed the medievalism of Gothic canopies, and even the figures do not look much like his work.
