Lincoln Cathedral’s breathtaking stained glass is one reason many believe this to be the finest Gothic cathedral in the British Isles.  Much of its medieval glass has been lost, but what remains is the most important collection of English early thirteenth-century glass after Canterbury Cathedral.  The nineteenth-century windows demonstrate crucial developments in the history of stained glass.

This beautiful stained glass paperweight is a replica of the Grisaille window, from the South East Transept by the tomb of Bishop Grosseteste.  Grisaille describes a style of painting executed entirely in shades of grey or of another neutral greyish colour and the windows are made of a repeating geometric design.

Each stained glass paperweight is made in the borders of Scotland and Cumbria and comes presented in an ivory and gold gift box.

Measures approx. 7cm in diameter and 2cm deep.
