Subject/Title of Window: Dining Room Doors

Brief Description of Subject: The medallion at the left depicts a medieval English lord standing before his blazing dining hall fireplace, above which hang crossed swords and armor. In the background is a table below a window with similar medallions. The lord of the manor is facing the scene presented in the medallion on the right, which is inset in an adjoining door. It pictures a visitor who lifts his hat in greeting, after being admitted by the lady of the manor through the open door in the background. Flanking the two doors that show scenes of the host and his visitor are doors with medallions that feature a friar enjoying food and drink.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact donald20@msu.edu
