Designer: Sir Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898)

Firm: Morris & Co.

Stained glass


All Saints', Putney, London SW15

North Aisle, 2

Here are King David with his harp, and King Solomon holding a model of his temple. The same Solomon can be seen, much later on, in the north aisle of All Saints, Leek — although the David there is different. Later representations of David seem to have been preferred. The window in G. E. Street's All Saints' in Putney was installed in memory of Charles Welstead, who died in 1897.
