Article is based on incomplete files and research of Jan Gadd

In 2002 this flagon was still at the Church of St Sebastian on the outskirts of Grantham Lincolnshire. It probably originates from the 1200s though much enlarged in the 1400s. It has late Norman capitals on the eastern bay of the northern arcade of columns. The stone carving of the ‘frieze’ is a remarkable number of interesting carved animals and figures in various positions whose meaning is lost to time. The website illustrates some 18 of them (http://greatenglishchurches.co.uk/html/great_gonerby.html). There are many other imposing carved stones representing on corners and elsewhere figures of authority and perhaps notables of the time.
