Research Information:

According to Sewter, this particular panel was executed specifically for the Foreign Exhibition, Boston, Massachusetts, in 1883 by Morris & Co. It is a variation on an earlier window, executed in 1872-73 for the Vyner Memorial Window in the Lady Chapel of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford.
