Charleston's Historic Windows - "9 over 9's" and "12 over 12's"

Charleston's Historic Windows -"9 over 9's" and "12 over 12's"

What a rare find.....a house with both "9 over 9" and "12 over 12" windows.  The twelve over twelve's are only found in Charleston's oldest homes.  Seldom do you see an example of both "9 over 9" and "12 over 12" in one setting.  These types of windows were circa 1879 and can be sighted around downtown Charleston.

Can you count the panes ?  Two sashes of twelve panes = 12 over 12.

If the windows are also the old wavy glass, then it's even more nostalgic.  We have a lot of those in Norfolk, but not in the 9/9 and 12/12 formats as you display.
