Baroque window

Baroque windows have symmetrical casements and small panes of cylinder glass or crown glass. The characteristic, round mullion resembles the stone mullions of the Renaissance. The casements are side-hung and hinged with corner hinges.

During the Baroque period, wooden muntins were developed as well as the technique of attaching windowpanes with putty. This was a great improvement as windows with wooden muntins are more closely sealed and do not rattle like lead lights.
