The Crucifixion with St Catherine and St Asaph
technique: stained glass
firm/studio: possibly Cox, Sons, Buckley & Co.
Church of St Catherine, Old Colwyn, Conwy
east wall of the chancel
The window replaces an earlier window of 1844 by Charles Clutterbuck, depicting Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane, the Crucifixion and Ascension.
The north and south nave windows were made in the 1880s by Cox, Sons, Buckley & Co. (one of which is signed), and it is possible that the donor of the east window went to the same firm for this window. Although the firm was prolific, too little attributed work by the firm from around this date has been published to attribute the window with any certainty.
The window was given by John Matthews Elliott of Rose Hill, Newton Heath (Manchester), in memory of his wife Elizabeth. The face of Catherine appears to a portrait, and may be a depiction of Elizabeth Elliott.
