Victorian glass?

Edwardian. The date is 1907.

Thank you. I looked for a date on the window as there sometimes is but couldn't see one. It's quite dramatic in a very "clean" sense. Melodramatic perhaps.

Melodramatic? Yes, I think so.

Inaccurate too. The knights didn't leave Beckett in a state to strike attitudes and make dying speeches. They killed him very dead. The reports say there were brains all over the floor.

I quite like that, particularly the knights sneaking out the back. A good maker, I think.

A little bowdlerised, I think. According to the accounts I've read there were brains all over the floor.

And by the time the knights were finished with him Becket was in no fit state to strike attitudes.

But otherwise, no, no bad. It's late. It commemorates someone who died in 1907.
