Catesby Priory (also known as Catesby Abbey) was a priory of Cistercian nuns at Lower CatesbyNorthamptonshire. It was founded in about 1175 and dissolved in 1536. According to the hand written label found on one, it was pulled down in 1862.

These unique window panes are artefacts from said priory, and have been brought to us by a client to have framed and preserved.

Using our extensive knowledge and cutting edge equipment, we feel we have managed to present these is the best possible way, much to the delight of our client.

Each item has been placed within its own diamond shaped aperture, and geometrically positioned in the way they were intended.

A box frame was then constructed and glazed with our Clarity Glass, which is practically invisible to the human eye. It also filters out the majority of harmful UV light, thus protection its contents.
