DROMENON

tained bay went out, and the dim figure disappeared-he could evidently leave the choir from some small entrance by the console. Well, fate had decided. I was to stick to my last and leave amateur admiration alone. I went into the nave and certainly soon felt I was rewarded for my choice. The trefoiling of the clerestory contained a neat but not too difficult set of clues to the history of the building. There was the rebus of Abbot Blessington-a hand with two fingers raised, stuck out of a barrel or tun-Abbot Blessington, who had reared this gaunt clerestory. There, in another bay, were the white branching deer's horns with a little crucifix set in them. A window to St. Eustace had probably stood beneath, but the reference, no doubt, dated the window, for unhappy Edward II himself was said to have seen the silver stag of Cranborne Chase, a fact which first was taken as proving his oncoming doom but which, when his son had won the throne, supported the popular claim that he had been more than one-half a martyr.
Next, I was delighted to find a pure piece of medallion glass, glass, of course, much earlier than its actual fourteenthcentury setting, a lovely little translucent mosaic of jeweled lumps of pure "pot metal," set like an early Limoges enamel in a thick coiling of lead. There must have been some particular reason to induce Abbot Blessington-for I assume it must have been done under his orders-to salvage this medallion or, rather, three hearts of medallions (for the three topmost cusps of the window each carried a knot of this early glasswork). The color was fine but, of course, the whole style would have seemed to a fourteenth-century builder as old-fashioned and clumsy as Jacobean furniture
