  • Ornately patterned LeadLight windows were made in casement style, which open out along the vertical axis.
  • These Lead Light windows were hand made by skilled craftsmen
  • Styles could range from floral with Art Nouveau influences to a simple geometric pattern.
  • Bay windows were popular
  • Also popular were simple groupings of 3 or 4 casement windows in a single line.
  • Federation Casement sets often included Transom lights, the smaller window above the main casement.
  • These Transom lights were very often fitted with coloured moulded patterned glass. - Terrace House Factory
