I wish I could convey in words how extraordinary these windows are. This Three Piece Transom Set exemplifies the most elevated artistry of 'The Chicago Combination Window' in that all-too-brief time period when all previous limits were exceeded. The glass quality, the beveling, the design and the workmanship are simply the best.

The set came from a home on the 3700 block of South Michigan Ave; the probable address is 3734 S. Michigan. This neighborhood of South Michigan was the very heart of Millionaire's Row, boasting some of Chicago's most spectacular mansions, laid side by side along a majestic, tree-lined boulevard.

I don't see signs of any restoration. There are a few barely noticeable small straight cracks, but the imperfections are minor.
