1904

Two-light window with standing figures.

technique: stained glass
size: 45 cm (width of each light)
firm/studio: Lavers & Westlake

Church of St David, Blaenporth, Ceredigion
south wall of the chancel

Signed and dated by the firm in the left-hand light.

Given in memory of Mary Jones, nurse to the family at Tyllwyd from 1861-1904.


Although the window depicts only the two figures without any background, the window implies the biblical story in which the pregnant Mary goes to visit her older cousin Elizabeth (Luke 1:39-56).
