Interior transom windows
In our 110 year old renovation house, we have replaced 14 interior transom window frames. Prior owners had installed dropped acoustic ceilings and pulled out or boarded up the original transoms. We have no record of what the original glass might have looked like.
Can anyone tell us what the style would have been in the Mid-Atlantic region/Western PA around 1900? We were going to have clear leaded glass windows made, then considered stained glass, then my MIL said there used to be a covering put on plain glass to keep light glare out of the rooms at night when the hall lights are turned on, mostly on the second story.
Any ideas are appreciated. We also will be doing the same on the exterior transom and we're thinking stained glass would be appropriate there.
In this photo, you can see where many doors converge near the kitchen.
