‘Bagpiper’ Winchester Roof Boss

£21.00

In stock

Exclusive to Winchester Cathedral’s shop, a replica of one of our carved roof bosses depicting a medieval minstrel playing the bagpipes.

A roof boss is a carving that covers the joins between the ribs of a vaulted ceiling. Made from stone or wood, a boss’s naturally rounded shape lends itself to a variety of designs. Winchester has over a thousand roof bosses, including this charming little musician.

The boss is made from resin and finished to give the appearance of the original stone carvings. It comes in a box, making a wonderfully unique gift. We also stock other bespoke bosses.
