Crowned and nimbed abbess standing in a canopied niche against a plain ruby background, facing to sinister, holding a book in her right hand and a crozier in her left, wearing a blue habit edged with a yellow-stain pattern and lined with ermine, with white wimple. There is an ears-of-barley pedestal and ruby glass at the bottom of the panel, which may have been cut down. Trace-line, stipple shading, matt wash, relieving. White, pot-blue and flashed-ruby glass, with yellow stain. c.1440 – c.1450. The ruby glass is probably modern, and a small piece of the right side shaft has been replaced. Medium external corrosion, but heavy on the blue glass, which is opaque in places; moderate paint loss.
