Rare Set of Four Yew Pre Reformation Panels

England c. 1500 to 1540
Rare set of four English Pre Reformation Yew Panels, circa 1500 - 1540

The four panels carved in high relief depicting St Veronica with the face of Christ, The Annunciation with Lion of Judah, The Virgin and Child and St John with mitre and crozier.

Originally from a small Chest or Coffer, two panels with cutouts where the lock plate would have been.

NB. It's rare in England to see surviving examples of Catholic symbolism in pre reformation furniture, art and carved work, as so much was destroyed post reformation.
