Hello everyone, long time visitor here but first time posting.

I recently acquired a nice double hung stained glass window pair that I am attempting to restore and eventually have it replace the double hung windows on my front entrance.

Unfortunately, as my luck would have it, measurements were a bit off ;)

The stained glass sash are 1 inch short on width and ~ 2inches short on lengths (when stacked in "closed" potion).

One option is to remove the glass and make a new sash that fits the old frame (has the weights etc)

Another option is to just let them be and use the window a different location

I would love to know whether there is 3rd option to somehow fit this without going nuts on an existing frame ?

Thanks in advance.

You might add wood strips to the edges of the stiles and at the top and bottom rail. This could be done by cleaning off the edges, cutting strips of wood to size, then screwing and gluing the strips on.
