St George And The Dragon Hand Painted Stained Glass Window
The window has been painted in the style of Charles Eamer Kempe (29 June 1837 – 29 April 1907) was a Victorian stained glass designer and manufacturer. His studios produced over 4,000 windows and also designs for altars and altar frontals, furniture and furnishings, lichgates and memorials that helped to define a later nineteenth century style. The list of English cathedrals containing examples of his work includes: Chester, Gloucester, Hereford, Lichfield, Wells, Winchester and York.
As a trademark, the firm used a golden garb or wheatsheaf, taken from Kempe’s own coat of arms as a signature for their work. A distinct style, it is very easy to pick out a Kempe window, from the beautiful faces, pearl encrusted drapery and peacock feather wings.
‘The design and execution of that window is superlative and if old Charlie Kempe were still around he’s snap that artist up for sure! ‘
