Description

Exclusively produced for Westminster Abbey, this exquisite handmade decoration has been inspired by the Abbey’s Rose Window. It combines zardozi thread, glass and pearl beads and velvet to add a touch of luxury to any Christmas tree.
The reverse is embroidered with Westminster Abbey so would make a wonderful souvenir of your visit.
The window shows Christ surrounded by sixteen figures symbolising the Virtues and order of angels. In the outer circle thirty-two figures from Jewish and ancient tradition represent the preparation of the world for Christ.
This window, the largest of its type, is thirty-two feet across. Devised by G.F. Bodley and M.R. James it was painted by Burlison and Grylls and given as a memorial to Hugh Lupus Grosvenor, 1st Duke of Westminster 1825-1899.
The window was dedicated on 26 September 1902.
Not to be given to children under 36 months.
St. Nicolas specialises in bespoke Christmas decorations and fabric gifts. All the decorations are handmade, and the time taken to make each one is reflected in their unique quality.
Their Indian Christmas decorations are made using the traditional method of zardozi embroidery. Zari (meaning gold) embroidery originated in Persia and reached India in the 12th century. It is a highly skilled embroidery technique that traditionally used gold wires and jewels to embellish courtly robes. Zardozi work is a rare and respected craft, the skills of which are handed down from generation to generation.
