Box Sash Diamond Lights

I came across this beauty whilst stopping for lunch in the west country on my way down to Cornwall. I have described this as a Box Sash Diamond Light which is something I have never seen before. The Diamond design is not unusual in fixed and opening windows but in a sash window it is. There would be a considerable amount of work involved in manufacturing and glazing of this window sadly now in a poor state of repair.

My guess is that eventually it will be replaced by a plastic unit, the building itself did not appear to be unusual or of historic importance so its probably not a listed building or window. I did knock on the door hoping someone would answer and throw some light on the subject but no one was in. So I stood in the public car park around the back of the building lodged between a parked car and an opening in a fence and done my best to take this image without drawing attention to myself. I did wonder what would I say if challenged by the police I would probably try and draw their attention to the design and aesthetics of this window and my website. They may come to a different conclusion! My wife incidentally wanted nothing to do with me at this point.

Traditional standards. Traditional tradesman. Traditional service. I have been a carpenter for over 45years, 5 year apprenticeship as a boat builder, 2 years as a wood machinist, then a spell repairing furniture and manufacturing reproduction antique clocks. I spent a further 15 years working in a therapeutic environment passing on my skills, before setting myself up as a self-employed carpenter/joiner. As you will appreciate, I undertake a wide range of projects, so scrolling through the site map may well direct you to past work that may be similar to your requirements. The preferred way to contact me is by using the contact page on this site. However you can always ring me during normal working hours. Lead times vary depending on the time of year; small jobs I can often do promptly. I cover Southampton and I am also happy to visit Winchester and Salisbury areas, but a small fee will be charged.
