Nottingham alabaster relief with St. John , St. Peter & Thomas a Becket.

An important Nottingham alabaster high relief with the head of St. John the Baptist represented on a dish. Above two angels bear a small figure on a shroud representing the soul of the saint. Below Christ stands in the tomb, flanked by St Peter and St Thomas a Becket. Unlike most reliefs having been made for an assembly in altarpieces this relief and others with the same subject were carved for private veneration and hung in no other context.

Alabaster with remains of polychrome paint and gilding.

Nottingham. 2nd half of the 15th century.

Dimensions: relief : 26cm x 17,5cm x 3,5cm in depth ; velvet base 36cm x 23,5cm

Mounted on a custom made velvet base with an old descriptive collector's or dealer's label at the back.
