This is the third of three posts on Stanley Kennedy North’s work for the Colman family of Norwich mustard fame. (See #1 here and #2 here.)
SKN did three pieces of stained glass for the great Norfolk mustard makers, and this, the third, is a large (I guess six foot by six foot) set of panels which add up to a heraldic device celebrating the Colman’s. It is currently (October, 14) dismantled as panels, in store at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, in the care of NNUH’s Arts Project and its chief, Emma Jarvis.
The panel is built round a pair of panels with the text (repunctuated):
“Geoffrey Russell Rees Colman, 1892 – 1935, chairman of this hospital 1932-33, in whose memory this maternity wing was built by his parents Russell James Colman and Edith Margaret Colman, in the year of our Lord 1938. For thy peace thou wast beloved.”
Here’s a gallery of other images from this heraldic work:
