Stained glass panel
Stained glass and lead
Sudbury Hall, Derbyshire
Panels 6 to 11 form a set, the dimensions are the same, and there are indications that they have all been in the same building - the remains of mortar on the leads is very similar, and the lead ties are all in the same positions indicating that they originally had 5 supporting bars. These panels date from the mid 16th century, probably English, and are a very important survival.This panel has a diamond engraving ‘N3’. And has a complex heraldic device surrounded by red and white roses and surmounted by a silver stained crown. There is a bar at the top and base and a further three horizontal bars. Possibly the Arms of Queen Katherine Parr 6th wife of Henry VIII.
Vernon collection transferred to the Treasury in 1967 following the death of 9th Lord Vernon, and transferred to the National Trust in 1967.
