Roodscreen On ebay

Yes....that was what it said....a Roodscreen on ebay!

It went for £925.

But I not sure it was real roodscreen first it didn't look like any roodscreen I'd seen as the proportions and tracery just looked 'wrong'...and there were no panels with Saints. The thing that clinched it , for me, was where would you put the rood aka the Cross with Mary and John either side of the cross? For example there's a complete one a St Mary's In Charlton-on-Otmoor. So, you can see the ebay Roodscreen (for me) does not look substantial enough to be a 'proper' roodscreen.
