The Good Shepherd; Christ at the Door

Designer: Henry Stacy Marks

Firm: Lavers & Barraud


St Matthias, Richmond

This window in St. Matthais, Richmond, was the earliest to be installed (see Eberhard), its installation having been noted in the London Daily News of 7 August 1858. It shows Jesus with a shepherd's crook amid sheep at the sheepfold, and (on the right) at what looks like a church door, pointing the way (no doubt, to salvation). These brilliantly coloured scenes are perfect in theme for a newly-built church.
