Elizabeth was a Hungarian noblewoman revered for her generosity to the poor. When her tight-fisted husband caught her carrying food, a miracle occurred and roses spilled out of her robe. These two charming windows were recycled from an earlier chapel of the Sisters of Providence.
John Hardman (1767-1844),was the patriarch of a metal works Birmingham, which began creating stained glass windows in the Victorian century. The firm made windows for the restoration of Parliament in London after it was bombed during World War II.
Outside of the United Kingdom, Hardman & Co delivered stained glass windows for Canada, the United States and Australia. The company survived until 2008.
