about 1910

Two-light window with seated kings and angels linked by a vine stemmed from Jesse in the lower right-hand light. At the top the Virgin and Child are shown, with a book open displaying the Alpha and Omega. The uppermost tracery light depicts Christ in Majesty.

size: 60 cm (width of each light) [approx]
firm/studio: N H J Westlake, London

Church of St Mary, Caernarfon, Gwynedd
south wall of the south aisle

In memory of L.W.G. Hughes of Coed Helen who died 13 June 1910. The window bears the Coat of Arms of Coed Helen.

Another window of the same subject by Westlake from the 1920s, at the Church of St Lawrence, Bradwell, offers an interesting comparison with this window, see Buckinghamshire Stained Glass. Although stylistically the window is close, the design is across four lights and uses different cartoons.
