The architect Philip Webb was a partner in Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. He occasionally provided cartoons for the firm's glass when his skill in drawing birds and animals was required. This design is for a roundel that forms part of a rose window depicting the days of creation in the west wall of Bodley's All Saints, Selsley, Gloucestershire.
