I bought this etching at a junk shop in North Wales a few years ago because I love the Edwardian and the Gothic. I wondered if the good people of Twitter or Blogland could help me in locating the real chantry that it depicts.
Bottom left on the frame, the signature seems to be C G Coperman, 1911. The place St Michaels on Wyre? Or am in not reading it correctly?
Google tells me there is a church with this name in Lancashire, England, but the description of its interior does not mention a chantry dedicated to St Catherine. I cannot find any pictures of this church's interior either that confirm this is indeed the chilly corner where Mr or Ms Coperman sat in 1911!
Bottom right of the frame it says St Catherine's Chantry. Google offered me very little on this when searched alongside St Michael on Wyre. There is nothing else in the picture or on the frame to give me a clue.
Can anyone help solve the mystery? Do you know anyone who lives in St Michaels on Wyre who might know?
I would love to see a photograph of the chantry now.
Thanks for reading, and if you can help, have a big kiss x.
