about 1865

Three-light window with scenes representing the six acts of mercy.

firm/studio: Joseph Bell

Church of St Peter, Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire
south wall of the south aisle (window number: sVI)

Given in memory of Charles Morgan (died 1833) and his wife Magdalene (died 1844) by their granddaughter M. Morris.

The scenes are all conventional although one of them includes a figure holding keys and another holding a book. Might this suggest a biblical scene with Peter and John?
