Stained glass panel
Stained glass and lead
Norbury: The Old Manor, Derbyshire
Six stained glass panels from a series of Labours of the Months. These are very rare survivals of mid fifteenth century English painted roundels. The techniques used include black paint, yellow stain, grey wash and stickwork.
Costume detail (which dates the panels to the mid-fifteenth century) links the roundels to the occupancy of Nicholas Fitzherbert, who inherited the estate in 1448.
