about 1896

Three-light window with additional scene below: (left to right) the Annunciation, the Supper at Emmaus, and the Nativity. Angels above the figures in the outer lights, and Christ in Majesty seated at the top of the central light.

firm/studio: Robert J. Newbery

Church of St Mary Magdalene, Pontygwaith, Rhondda Cynon Taff
east wall of the chancel (window number: I)

Description of the window, and attribution, based on a design for the window in a private collection. The design is undated, but bears the name of the architect (G.E. Halliday) indicating that perhaps it was installed when the church was built, however, it could be a later addition to the church from the early twentieth century.
