Tracery

type of window design

Tracery is a device used in architecture by which windows (or screens, panels, and vaults) are divided into different parts by stone bars.[1] It most commonly refers to the stoneworks that support the glass in a window. Tracery can also be found on the inside and outside of buildings.[2]
