Three windows in Ivanovo

Дом в Иваново  с тремя окнами на улицу.House in Ivanovo with three windows into the yard

These window frames from Ivanovo are among my most favorite.  I wrote once that back in the XIXth century frames had formed five sections in the window, as smaller glasses were much cheaper. To reduce its price even lower, people used to insert color glasses in the bottom sections – I had seen green and red ones, yet I suspect they could come in other color, too.

The owners of this house have installed new frames and large glasses usual now, yet the part that had been made of color glass is painted green. Seems like they get used to it.
