Stained Glass Panel with Aconite Leaves

c. 1275-1300

Pot-metal and white glass, silver stain

Overall: 55.9 x 33.4 cm (22 x 13 1/8 in.)

Gift of Ella Brummer in Memory of her Husband, Ernest Brummer 1977.89

Description

This stained glass panel is decorated in a grisaille (monochromatic) technique but also includes a colored border using pot-metal glass. The original source of the glass is unknown. The ban of 1134 by the Cistercian Order against using figural art and brightly colored glass suggests this panel may derive from a window in one of that order’s churches. This is the earliest stained glass in the museum’s collection.
