Left: Whole window. Right: Detail of St John the Evangelist.

Jesus and St John the Evangelist, from designs by Sir Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898). Made by Morris & Co., the window was installed in the east side of the north porch of Richard Norman Shaw's All Saints, Leek, around the turn of the nineteenth century: it is inscribed: "herbert arundel died december 3 1898." A young and rather frail-looking Jesus displays the stigmata, while St John holds not only the legendary chalice, from which poison is escaping in the form of a little dragon, but also the communion bread.
