Inspired by the intricate enamel work that surrounds the mosaic centrepiece of the High Altar in Westminster Abbey, this printed silk scarf would make a stylish addition to any lady’s wardrobe.
The square scarf has an intricate gold, blue, green and purple print and the design is edged with a gold border.
The scarf is made in the UK, is 100% silk and comes in gift packaging.
The present altar and screen were erected between 1867 and 1873 after George Gilbert Scott’s design. The sculpted figures on the screen (Moses, St Peter, St Paul and King David) are by H.H. Armistead. Behind the altar is a mosaic of the Last Supper designed by J.R. Clayton and carried out by Antonio Salviati. The inscription along the top of the screen reads “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ” (from the book of Revelation).
