1905

Two-light window.


firm/studio: C.E. Kempe

Church of St Egwad, Llanegwad, Carmarthenshire
south wall of the nave, adjacent to pulpit

Memorial to Sarah L. Prosser (died 1900) given by her husband and children. The window is of 1905, and therefore the work of the firm under C.E. Kempe himself.

The window depictes the Virgin Mary as a young adolescent. Note also the Germanic/Low Countries medieval town in the background of Gabriel. Kempe was historicist, and greatly influenced by the glass of northern Europe dating from the late fifteenth-sixteenth century.
