i have a American Foursquare built in 1900. I need to replicate a Mission Tudor Diamond pane window. I have not removed it yet but it is pretty deteriorated. I was hoping someone would know what kind of joint they used for the muntins. I have been searching for the answer and haven't had any luck. I don't want to pull the old window until I have made the reproduction. The attached close-ups are examples I found online. The other is the actual in the attic dormer. Mine is difficult to access and removing it would mean running the risk of destroying it without a replacement.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I'm afraid I don't have an answer for you but I've collected a lot of bookmarks in my browser on restoring windows and some of them may be useful to you:

1. An interesting book I've always wanted to buy but haven't:

Historic Millwork: A Guide to Restoring and Re-creating Doors, Windows, and and Moldings of the Late Nineteenth through Mid-Twentieth Centuries
By Brent Hull

2. A bunch of books and articles on restoring historic windows:
https://www.hpef.us/windows/

3. Lot of good links on window preservation from the Washington State Dept. of Archeology and Historic Preservation
https://dahp.wa.gov/historic-preservation/preservation-topics/window-preservation-guidance

4. The Window Restorers - a craftsman that might be able to help
http://www.oldewindowrestorer.com/muntins.html

5. Try searching the internet archive for old window manufacturer materials. If you can figure out who made your windows or if the trade name/brand name, that will help you find more details:
www.archive.org

Good luck and let us know if you find anything helpful.[/list]
