Windows

casement windowsThe use of glass became more widespread during the Tudor period.

Tall, narrow casement windows.
Small window panes.
Look for wooden window frames.

 

It was during the Tudor times that glass was first used in homes. It was very expensive and difficult to make big pieces of glass so the panes were tiny and held together with lead in a criss-cross pattern, or ‘lattice’.

People who couldn't afford glass used polished horn, cloth or even paper.

Tudor windows were usually casement windows. These are windows on a hinge that opened outwards so air can be let in.


The windows above look as though they have been hung on the wall.

Notice the wooden frame. Most modern houses have plastic frames.
