This is one of a series of thirteen stained glass designs illustrating the Story of Tristram and Iseult as told in Malory's 'Morte d'Arthur'. Walter Dunlop of Bradford commissioned the windows for his music room at Harden Grange, near Bingley, Yorkshire. They were made by Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Company in 1862. The windows are now in the collection of Bradford City Art Gallery.
