Stained glass panel
Stained glass and lead
320 x 710 mm
Sudbury Hall, Derbyshire (Accredited Museum)
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. Panel 9 has a slightly different design. It has Royal arms, with a label in upper left quadrant. The grotesques vary and there are depictions of male bearded heads. The border has a wreath with fruits. The ground is again white glass, some of which is original, surmounted by a silver stained crown.
Vernon collection transferred to the Treasury in 1967 following the death of 9th Lord Vernon, and transferred to the National Trust in 1967.
