1a Grisaille Panel with Medallion of Bowman

(see also 1b and 1c)

The original grisaille has a trellis pattern with oak leaves and acorns; the panel is made up with mid-14th-century quarries bearing yellow-stain roses. Cinquefoil medallion (with red foliate ground and the remains of a beaded, yellow border) showing a man in profile with a large nose and a sheaf of arrows slung across his shoulders, clasps a longbow with both hands. At the sides are narrow blue beaded strips flanked by heraldic borders with the arms of Mowbray (Gules a lion rampant argent, the field diapered with quatrefoils) and Clare (Or three chevrons gules, the field diapered with foliage). Patching with medieval and modern glass.
