Rose Window Glass Paperweight
High in the gable of the South Transept in York Minster is the Rose Window which is one of the best known stained glass windows in England. The Rose Window took its present form around 1515 and commemorates the union of the royal houses of York and Lancaster. After the 1984 fire the window needed extensive restoration as the heat from the fire cracked the 7,000 pieces of glass in the window in about 40,000 places. This amazing piece of rescue work was completed and the window was back in place by the summer of 1987.
