In the US, windows above doors are called transom windows, which is kind of a blah term for one as nice as this one in Essex. Wikipedia says that the Brits call them "fanlights," regardless of their shape. Today I am going with my friends from across the pond.
This is my contribution to Monday Doorways.
This is sooooo pretty, elegant and stylish!
And YOU have created a very nice image!:)
This fan window is really pretty! I'd love to have one like this.
Let's go with the Brits! It's too lovely for such a boring word. :)
«Louis» agrees with the others! Let's go with the Brits!
He thanks you for this fine contribution to Monday Doorways and hopes you'll become a regular contributor!
I think this is one of the fanciest fanlights I have seen!
Today's fanlights is a work of art!
It's lovely!! Are you jet-lagged?
Fanlight sounds so much nicer than transom. Wonderful doorway.
I really like that one. They are usually so plain.
Very pretty Jack. (Just had to respond to this post, as I was born in Ilford, ESSEX in the UK many "moons" ago !!) Thanks for sharing.
I often asked myself what a transom was, thinking it had something to do with the Navy!
That's beautiful Jack and I'd like to join the door folks but I can't for the life of me ever keep the days etc straight so I just don't do them anymore.
So beautiful! (no matter what it's called;)
Truly, I do not think that I have ever seen a fanlight quite like this one. It is just so delicately stunning. I want to see more of this building (house).
