One of Hutton's Glass Screen Angels in Hampshire

The garden seen through one of Hutton's Coventry Angels
Part of the great west window at Coventry Cathedral, a translucent lace-like pattern of saints and angels. This line of saints St Alfred the Great; St Margaret, Queen of Scotland and St Bede. 
The West Window and the nave of Coventry Cathedral seen through the West Window etched with saints and angels..
I have been fortunate enough to be given a replica of one of the angels in John Hutton's magnificent glass screen that forms the great west window of Coventry Cathedral. It now stands on a table in the loggia where the light from the garden can illuminate the etched form. With thanks to dear June Gracey, who's parents received the window after donating the Frink Lectern to the Cathedral.
