Latticework window[edit]

I visited Leighton House recently, which contains an Oriental chamber full of Turkish tiles, and a beautifully carved wooden projecting latticework window brought by Lord Leighton from Damascus, which the interpretation states is called a "zenana" and from which women could look down over the street without being seen themselves. There may be other terms for such a window, but should this use not figure in this article? Diomedea Exulans (talk) 21:10, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
