medieval stained glass twycross french

 

French medieval stained glass presented to William IV and then given to Earl Howe, who had it installed in St. James church Twycross Leicestershire. Much of the glass originally came from Sainte-Chapelle in Paris, Saint-Denis near Paris, Le Mans cathederal, and Saint-Julien-du-Sault in Burgundy.

 

The individual panels were arranged in this window by Thomas Willement during the churches restoration in the 1840s.
