about 1865
Three-light window with scenes representing the six acts of mercy.

technique: stained glass

firm/studio: Joseph Bell

Church of St Peter, Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire
south wall of the south aisle

Given in memory of Charles Morgan (died 1833) and his wife Magdalene (died 1844) by their granddaughter M. Morris.

The scenes are all conventional although one of them includes a figure holding keys and another holding a book. Might this suggest a biblical scene with Peter and John?
