Very Antique Window Protection, 44.5" by 76" tall, 18th C. ??


Peso Priced Item.  Very Antique Window Protection, 44.5" by 76", 18th C. ?? This is the oldest one we have in stock.  Late 1700's ?? holes were cut into the horizontal strips and then the round bars were woven through making a REALLY strong unit.  Meant to keep the really bad guys out!

This a very antique window guard, the way the side bars are bent to 90 degrees was hand forged in the days of blacksmiths.. heating and pounding to get the tip bent so it would anchor into the window frame without any welding.


We have used these in trompe-l'œil installations, if you have a large wall perhaps as a back drop to your garden or patio.  You have one of these old iron window guards installed as if there were a window there (sometimes even paint the outline of a window).   Then you plant a flowering vine under the window guard and soon you have a beautiful 'trompe-l'œil' antique window in your patio/garden.
