Angel Piper mounted on blue card

This angel playing the bagpipes comes from the Thistle Chapel, part of St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh by whom the original tile was commissioned. This small chapel designed by Robert Lorimer in 1911, is filled with carved and painted fittings of exquisite detail, including this charming wooden angel. The chapel is dedicated to The Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle, Scotland's foremost Order of Chivalry. The Order, which was founded by James VII in 1687, consists of the monarch and 16 knights, the personal appointment of the crown. Normally these are Scots who have contributed significantly to national or international affairs. Knights have included Sir Alec Douglas-Home, and Sir Fitzroy MacLean. There are currently 15 members of the Order of the Thistle, leaving one vacancy. Aside from these 15 members, there is of course Her Majesty the Queen, together with The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles and Princess Anne. This tile design, with its pretty silhouette, looks good in one of our frames.
