Hexham Abbey Frid Stol

inscription:  Model of ancient Frid Stol in Hexham Abbey, Northumberland

notes:  This model can be found white glazed, white unglazed, and brown unglazed, the brown unglazed form also occurring in the form of a two piece "pin box" with lid. All three single piece forms are known both with and without a coat of arms, though they are more commonly found with arms. The pin box is only known without arms.

The Hexham Goss agent sold the model in a specially designed box, which can be seen in the first photograph.
