Mel Howse has three installed commissions at Butchers' Hall in the City of London. This was the first to be commissioned by the Livery Company.

It is a feature window positioned on the ground floor of Butchers' Hall and facing onto Bartholomew's Close. It resides in the foyer along side a screen created by John Hutton. The design represents the Butchers' Company today, where those affiliated to the trade convene and network, sharing their knowledge and experience. The window celebrates the Quatercentenary anniversary of the Company in 2005. The piece is acid-etched stained glass and was unveiled by the Lady Mayoress on 1st September 2005.
