sV 1a.

1a. Nimbed and feathered seraph standing with hands raised wearing a scarf. The wheel on which it probably originally stood is above its head. The background consists mainly of relieved hawthorn diaper, disarranged but probably original. White and pot-yellow with trace-line, matt wash and relieving. c.1300 – c.1320. Figure complete, but the top left wing is cracked; a little paint loss; background diaper has been re-arranged and cut to fit the present opening. At the base are some fragments: part of a 13th-c stiff-leaf grisaille roundel with cross-hatching and a pot-yellow palmette border; some 15th-c rod-and-leaf border; part of a 15th-c floral wreath; and a piece of larger relieved vine leaf. Light to medium external corrosion with some paint loss. The panel has non-ventilated sheet-glass double glazing on the outside.
