From a closed church ("Church S"),

A set of ecclesiastical metalwork (cast aluminium) from the mid-1970s by the renowned artist Frank Roper (1914-2000).  

The set consists of 

Mushroom shaped canopy A mushroom shaped altar canopy (probably in fibreglass) approximately 6.4m diameter x 3.6m high.  

 Around the base of the canopy, cast aluminium figures of the Apostles, 84cm high (with internal lighting) and the wording “I am the bread of life”.

 It would be preferable for these to be re-homed with the canopy rather than in isolation.Apostles sculpture









North window metalwork  South window metalworkTwo metal sculptures approx. 3.2m high x 1.1m wide, designed to be backlit by natural light in window openings; one depicting a shoal of fish and the other the Virgin and Child.

•    Circular font cover approx. 1m diameter
•    Aumbry door, approx. 30 x 25 cm
•    Approximately 100 roundels, each approx. 35cm diameter (See above photos for examples)
