Discovering The Person Who Invented The Sash Window

Will we ever know who invented the sash window? At first everyone thought is originated in Holland during the 17th century. Then the thought was that they were created in England in the 1600’s. And yet another suggestion was that Britain was the creator in the mid 1600’s.
With all these theories we may never uncover the truth about the invention of the sash windows. W. Horman wrote a book in 1519 where he described a window with ‘levys going up and down’. That definitely sounds like a sash window. In 1676 at Chatsworth they were use conspicuously. The Banqueting House at Whitehall had its original casements replaced with these windows in 1685.
Improved designs began to arrive in England from France during the French Revolution. Frame in French is ‘chassis’ the word ’sash’ is derived for it. So it might be safe to think that France was the original creator.
The first weighted and balanced windows were thought to have been invented in England. These windows definitely fit in England with the wet, mild weather there. They will not rot as easily as other windows and the fact that you can open them slightly works in those moist conditions.
These windows soon became very popular with the upper class throughout Britain. Windows that were originally installed in the 18th century are still in working condition. During the Georgian period the upper and lower frames were designed to both be movable. This was also the time that the ’six over six’ pane formation became popular and the norm in most houses.
During the Victorian period these windows were part of the design of homes and buildings. The makers of these windows put a lot of quality work into their products. These windows have been around for 250 years from what we can tell. However, more recently the cost of manufacturing the windows has them on a decline in England. Plastic windows are becoming more popular because they are cheaper. But they will need to be replaced sooner than the wooden ones ever were.
While the answer to the question of who invented the sash window may never be clear we do know that those windows are a wonderful addition to your home. They give it a touch of class as was known in the Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian periods. Their classic style will not go out of style. Even with the plastic windows they still try to make them look like the original sash style.

  • This tale by Jewett is to me the best of the four shorter Dunnet Landing works she wrote. I was reminded of Hemingway's "Big Two-Hearted River." Like that story, this one focuses mostly on the very physical landscape into which our main character interjects herself. We don't get much commentary. We get nature in the raw. The story starts with the main character's landlady's brother coming for a visit. On the sly, the main character slips out with William, the brother, to go fishing. A morning spent there, one almost feels as if the main character is in love with William, though no words are...
  • Covering the years 1880 to 1940, this book delves into the history of publishing and reading not only of the book but of newspapers and magazines. That I enjoyed the text is evident from the length of this write-up (I only wish I could remember and write more); it's quite likely I'll return to read at least a couple of the other four volumes. The work wouldn't be nearly so interesting if it confined itself strictly to the book, for as the contributors show, the different forms of publication were all tied together. Case in point would be many of the literary periodicals of the period. We...
