Window Window

A pair of windows, bearing Pugin's symbol of a Martlet, probably by E. W. Pugin, and possibly for his extension at the Grange, Ramsgate. c.1855. It is also possible that these windows are by John Hardman Powell who was married to Pugin's daughter Anne. Height 59.5" (151 cm), and width 13¾" (35 cm). The lettering is a 16th century carol written by William Cornyshe (d.1523). It reads:

Pleasure yt ys to here I wys
The byrds syngying, the dere in the dale
The shepe in the vale, the corn spryngyng
Gods purvyance for sustenaunce
Yt ys for man, then we all wayse
To give prayse and thank hym than.
