a nice epitaph
Lisl: I will show more of the window at Christmas, sherri
I always enjoy the ethereal glow of stained glass. This one's more ethereal than most smile
Lisl: The whole window had a brilliant shine about it that made it project into the church
It's beautiful... if odd... is it displayed in a church?
Lisl: It is - the rest of the window displays the Madonna and Child
Surprenant avec la calèche.
Lisl: It was, although the rest of the window was traditional

It's a delight Lisl, a wonderful memorial window
Lisl: I will send you some pictures of the rest, Chris
You of all people would know how unusual this is, Lisl. Indeed.
Lisl: I love to find the unusual in stained glass, Ginnie

That is indeed very unusual but so beautiful, Lisl and also the perfect subject for a Christmas stamp.
Lisl: You wait till you see the rest of the window at Christmas, Astrid!
yes unusual indeed, Lisl. i like that stagecoach included in the bottom.
Lisl: A lovely touch, and it must be relevant in some way to the people commemorated
Really an original stained glass. Beautiful colors and subject
Lisl: The whole window is stunning, Marie, thank you

Yes, a very unusual subject, there might be some connection with the business or interests of Rowland B. Cooper and his wife. I see we are in Bibury.
Lisl: Well detected, Philine. I can't find out why they should have been interred in Hampshire
Where dos the coach fit in I wonder?
Lisl: I wish I knew, Bill. I have tried to research it, but to no avail

Well that can’t have been cheap Lisl, and I do like that stagecoach.
Lisl: I did read the price - can't remember, but it was ridiculously cheap

Superb workmanship. I delight in really well presented stained glass.This is exceptional.Thanks Lisl.
Lisl: It is lovely, and just a small detail of a much larger very stunning window
Lovely part of a memorial window, I wonder why the old coach.
Lisl: That has foxed me, too, Brian
I would say they were known for a fine carriage or worked making them to have it as their symbol.
Lisl: Yes, it makes you wonder, Mary

Perhaps sometime I may get to see it.
Lisl: Pity it is so far from Oldland - it's well beyond Cirencester

I may have underestimated your age, if you can remember the 1992 Christmas stamps. Either that, or you are a stamp collector.

I must say I have seen various types of epitaphs and such in churches. Especially the rich and famous of a district. Stained glass featured here is a first for me - but, it was bound to happen.
Lisl: I can remember stamps a long way further back than that, Louis! But I Googled this window, and the information on the stamps came up. A lot of English stained glass is dedicated as memorials (young Chad has an ancestor in Bath Abbey!)
Very unusual.
Lisl: Sometimes at the bottom of a traditional window, toy get an odd thing like this, but rarely

The stagecoach is rather a nice detail.
