Red House, tall narrow window on the eatern front

Stained Glass

Philip Speakmann Webb

1859-60

Morris's Red House

Bexleyheath, Greater London

The stained-glass windows here are some of the earliest that we have by Morris, with figures designed by Burne-Jones, and "stylised birds and flowers designed by Webb following 15th-century examples" (Red House 15). The figure here probably represents Love. It is much better seen from the inside, where, however, photography is not permitted.
