Production History

DGR made the watercolour design sometime in 1862, depicting “Christ's crown decorated with Alpha and Omega; four angels with crossed wings, two above and two below” (Sewter 422). In 1864 the Morris firm made the stained glass window for St. Peter's (now cathedral) in Bradford (the chancel east window, center top). Another window, slightly reduced in size, was produced around the same time for St. Paul's Manningham, Bradford, for the north aisle west window.
