Abstract

This article explores a set of early sixteenth-century iconographically-dense and extremely unusual carved wooden gates representing the Tree of Jesse, the Tree of Ecclesia, the Tree of Christ as Saviour and the Tree of Charlemagne. They were purchased from the Continent, probably Belgium, around 1840 by Charles Scarisbrick of Scarisbrick Hall in conjunction with A.W.N.Pugin, and were sold again to private collections in 1963 and 2013.
