Description

A view of the chantry in Salisbury Cathedral. The exterior wall of the chantry, which is made of stone, contains three arches. One arch surmounts the wooden door, which the other two arches are stacked ontop of each other on the facing right side of the door. The arches on the facing right side contain faux-draperies. In the spandrels of the upper arches are quatrefoil designs. There is a large, perhaps gold plated, candelabrum.
