Home Shop Lectures Autumn lecture 2019 Imported Continental Glass in Kent Churches
Our Hon. Librarian Leslie Smith will be talking about the Flemish, Swiss, and perhaps German, stained glass roundels in the churches of his home county of Kent. The distribution of imports was random, because of the geographical spread of their collectors, so although small in number, local studies can be of value.
He will describe the Northern European roundels listed by William Cole in the 1993 Corpus Vitrearum Medii Aevi Catalogue and examine their provenance, their import and sale and their collectors, as well as the sources for their designs and mainly biblical subjects. Swiss glass from the seventeenth century will also be discussed, plus a diversion to look at a previously uncatalogued country house collection.
