'Fox Face' Medieval Cathedral Carving
If you are not currently a member, we invite you to join or renew your membership online.
This carving of a fox’s face (c. 1340) is taken from a misericord within the choir stalls of Lancaster Priory. These carvings are some of the oldest surviving church carvings in England and were thought to be some of the finest examples in the country. Unfortunately these choir stalls were damaged and defaced by Oliver Cromwell during the English civil war and revolution of the mid-17th Century.
This ornate reproduction is hand-crafted to the highest standards by Oakapple Designs Ltd, a company specialized in reproducing medieval carvings using molds taken directly from original carvings found within the cathedrals and abbeys of the United Kingdom. Each piece is cast in resin and then stained to create a virtually indistinguishable copy.
Carving measures approximately 3.2 x 1.8 inches.
