Victorian Style Sash Windows

The Victorian era lasted from the mid-1800‘s to the start of the 1900‘s.

Many sashes from the last century lowered their sills to become full-length or even were replaced by French windows.

Because of increased weight of the plate glass and the loss of strength from the lack of glazing bars, „horns“ were invented.
