Gothic Panel 1


English Gothic oak panel of a bird pecking at grapes on a vine c.1520.  The overall design has a tree-of-Jesse form and the Gothic lettering in the centre of the panel could be read as God, the beginning and the end of life.










Gothic Tracery 2


Small, chunky 15th-century English/Scottish oak panel with a cross saltire above a crown, which is above a trefoil.  These features are found on coins of the mid to late 15th century.
