Period Lead Windows
Devizes homeowners may wonder what is really meant by period lead windows, and why they are so important to the age and style of older properties. Glass has been used since ancient times, but until relatively recently it was impossible to create large pieces of glass like we use in windows today. As the required technologies developed during the Renaissance period, lead windows began to be designed that joined smaller pieces of glass together using lead bars called ‘came’ to produce larger pieces that could glaze windows. These were usually too expensive for domestic use and were only used by wealthy families. Because they were expensive, windows were often seen as status symbols, and period lead windows were used as statement pieces on by homeowners.
Nowadays lead windows are used more for decorative additions than as a standard glazing option, and factory formed plate glass and double glazing has become to cheap and easy go to. Sadly, many glaziers have lost the ability, skill and knowledge required to replace, repair and maintain the period lead windows Devizes homes still have.
