An interesting note to the underside, which gives this piece wonderful provenance.
We acquired this piece from St Mary's Abbey, Colwich, Staffs.
The note reads: 'Lent From St Scholastica's Priory, Atherstone, May 9th 1872.'
St Scholastica's priory is no longer standing, a housing estate took its place.
In 1967, 18 nuns from St Scholastica's joined St Mary's Abbey.
St Scholastica priory was founded in 1859.
