    Hi it's from 2 Corinthians 3 : 17
    ...... where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

    It's a real stunner!

    Pure art nouveau and a stunning example !~Phil.
    Sometimes in that period, there would be Latin sayings that were printed near the ceiling, high on the wall, encircling the great hall in a grand home, and that was really spectacular ! Such a plate would go well on display !~
