1873

Three-light window.


patron: John Prichard
firm/studio: Morris & Co.
designer: Edward Coley Burne-Jones

Church of St Illtyd, St Gwynno and St Dyfodwg, Llantrisant, Rhondda Cynon Taff
east wall of the chancel (window number: I)

The window commemorates the ancestors of the architect, John Prichard. The figure of Christ was reused at Prichard's church at Baglan in 1880, and more impressively at the Church of St James, Staveley in Cumbria (1881), where the figure is set against a deep blue sky with stars, in marked contrast to the clear ground against which the figures are set here.
