Stock No: 15226

A stained and leaded glass window panel, possibly representing the paternal arms of the Grosvenor Crest, depicting a talbot dog atop a helm set in a field of multiple coloured glass sections held in a later stained pine frame. The quarterings include a crescent and star mark of cadency above the motto Virtus Non Stemma which translates as Valour Not Garland and is the Duke of Westminster's motto at his Eaton Hall Estate. English, 17th century and later.

Provenance: By repute removed from a chapel on a Grosvenor Estate.

Notes: The talbot dog, now extinct, was a type of hunting dog and probably the ancestor of the beagle or bloodhound and is often used in heraldry to represent a good-mannered hunting dog. The cadency marks the status of a younger branch of a family.
