Two-light window with standing figures. In the left-hand light an angel in armour stands holding a flaming sword and scales, and in the right-hand light a robed angel holds down a dragon at its feet with the point of a spear.

size: 42 cm (width of each light)

Church of St Michael, Abergele, Conwy
south wall of the south chancel

The window has similarities with the work of Shrigley and Hunt, who made the east window of the church.

Given in memory of Francis and Elizabeth Carmichael and family.


Both figures share the iconography of the archangel Michael, the patron of the church.
