Seller: gtrombino3808 (892) 100%, Location: Lara, VIC, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 274005204491 Amazing opportunity to source a house lot of original wooden French window sets with vertical metal cremone/espagnolette securing bolts and a unique origin story (see below). They appear to be made from an unidentified hardwood and have been beautifully handcrafted. The original hinges are intact along with the vertical metal cremone bolts and bottom hold open/closed long metal hooks. I even have some of the original cremone bolt catches and metal hook eyelets that were originally embedded in the window frames. After rescuing these I was intending to use them to construct a plant glasshouse in the garden, however this project has now been overtaken by others. Origin story; we bought an old rundown house here in Lara a few years ago with the intention of renovating, but it was too far gone so demolition was then the only option. It had many unusual architectural features worth saving (eg. these windows) and after demolition we were able to track down the son of the original house owner/builder. Turns out their family emigrated from Holland to Australia just after WW2, and to encourage migration the shipping company's back then would allow people to ship unlimited possessions in the ship's hold. And so, you guessed it, they literally deconstructed their family home and brought it with them (along with a caravan and small boat apparently). As the father was a carpenter/ship builder, its most likely he built the house himself. If the buyer is interested, I have copies of some original photos that show the house crated up waiting to be loaded onto the ship from Holland! Dimensions: all window sets have a combined (ie. 2 X window) width of 1105mm. There are then 3 X sets (ie. 6 windows) of 1245mm height and 8 X sets (ie. 16 windows) of 1465mm height. With the window sets also come some random associated windows of the same vintage and from the same house (one of which is still in its frame) including some original flyscreen panels that slot inside of a window when open. Please refer to photos for condition. Overall condition is excellent considering their age with just the usual wear and tear. One or two cremone bolts have slight bends that could be straightened if desired. Otherwise the windows could be left as is for a shabby chic look or cleaned up/stripped back if better presentation is required. Item will be pickup only unless you're prepared to organise your own shipping. Viewing of item is possible with prior notice; I could also for an extra $80 deliver these to central Melbourne/Geelong and points in between with prior agreement.
