Georgian windows

The Georgian architectural style was current between 1714 and 1830. More than any other period of English historic architecture, Georgian style is linked with the classical period of Greece and Rome. The type of building which most characterized the Georgian period was the brick Town House, often joined end in to end in a row to create “terraces”. 

Windows from this period were almost exclusively sash-windows, consisting of multiple smaller panes of glass divided by thin, delicate wooden glazing bars.  As glass manufacturing was expensive and limited to smaller panes of glass, the narrow astragal glazing bars allowed for large window sashes .  The classic 6 over 6 Georgian Sash Window remains a perfect expression of the UK’s traditional character.
