Maybe the "oldest" window in this recent series ! It's age is been estimated to approximately 300 years.And it belongs to an old wooden house in Safranbolu.
The special cage form helps that the women of the house can lean out to see WHO is knocking the door but still can not be observed by the men on the street !
Bu pencereler dizisinin en eski karesi herhalde bu pencere ! Safranboluda çektiğim bu pencere takriben 300 senelik. Evin harem kısmına ait. Kadınlar, kapıyı kimin çaldığını görmek için dışarı uzanabiliyorlar ama dışarıdakiler onları göremiyorlar !

I've never seen a window like this before, and to think its 300 years old? Wow, that's an old wooden structure. For me, the slightly broken slats of the cage around the window look a little threatening, like something from a scary movie. I think its because it reminds me a large scary mouth with fangs, and the dark brown staining on the wood reinforces that feeling.
Thanks as always

Hello, a very interesting architectural image. Good color and lines. Something antique and a story to go with it.

Bonjour Mesut, certes une porte qui date mais une histoire entière derrière cette porte, c'est beau de voir de l'ancien et le passé!

Toll! Hier hat der "Zahn der Zeit" lange lange arbeiten können, aber was er übrig ließ, ist immer noch sehenswert und interessant - und sieht noch ganz schön standhaft aus. Irgendwie hat dieses Fenster trotz seines Zustandes Charakter ...
Gefällt mir sehr!

"Maybe the oldest window" and maybe the window i like most, maybe because of the age and the wonderful worn wooden structure. It is quite fantastic that a 300 year old window can survive for so long time. I guess it is a dry climate in this area?
Crisp and clear shot, interesting note. Tfs!
Have a nice evening.
