Window roundel, associated with Anne of Denmark

This window roundel, dated 1600, is one of the few complete examples of early stained glass to have survived in Scotland. It would have been cut, decorated and mounted by a glass-wright, probably in a royal palace or associated church building.

The roundel shows the royal arms of Scotland impaling those of Anne of Denmark, the wife of James VI. It bears the motto: 'In my Defenc[e] God me Defend.'
