Ipswich window. C17 oriel window, with convex sides between the wall and mullions, transoms two-thirds of the height of the convex side-lights, and an arched centre-light with small lights on either side of an elaborate ancon, the lights leaded, and the mullions and panels beneath the cills heavily encrusted with ornament. Good examples survive at Sparrowe's House, Buttermarket, Ipswich, Suffolk (c.1670). The Ipswich window was the inspiration for R. N. Shaw, who used it at New Zealand Chambers, London (1871–3—demolished), and elsewhere.
