Sash Window Weights from 1850

Window Weights from circa 1850

We recently replaced some original sash windows in a house built in 1850, and on dismantling the windows we discovered these balance weights built into the frame, one was 6.5 lbs and the other was 7 lbs, we are probably the first people to see these since they were installed in 1850. We commend the installers knot tying skills as they lasted 169 years. As window geeks we found this really interesting and nostalgic.
