A very heavy, reclaimed, opening metal and oak window dating to C.1932. The window has a thick and heavy oak frame which has an interesting wood grain and colour. The frame has oak horns on either side to allow it to be fitted into a wall. The metal window within the frame has a top and bottom half, with the top half opening. Each half has leadwork, creating rectangular panels. The opening window has a metal stay bar and the window opens freely. The window originally had a key to open a small metal plate that held a screw to lock the window in place (picture 4) but the key has been lost. We cut the screw end so that the window can now open freely without a key, but please note the window cannot be locked.
The window is in good solid condition with some signs of age and use, as expected of reclaimed antiques. The oak frame has some knocks, chips and some large slithers of wood that are missing. The edges of the frame have some roughness and unevenness from leftover concrete or filler. The metal has some tarnish and the metal paint is flaking. Please see pictures for condition details. The window has great period style and would be ideal for a cottage or period home.
