A bevel glass window is a window with a pane of glasss that is ground to an angle on the edges and then polished up until it shines and is completely transparent. The edges simulate the edges on the raised panel of a cabinet door. The reason that the cost is so much more than a standard window is
1 The window has to be much thicker to take the bevel
2 the labor involved to make the bevel is much higher because of all of the hand work and polishing needed
All that being said-- the way that the window refracts light can be a stunning effect. Combined with the different types of glass that are assembled with lead caming, (the lead in between the different glass parts in a stained glass window, or beveled glass window) There is no better way to enhance an ugly or off sized window opening, or for that matter to cover up a lousy view that might be outside of your window.
For a big window manufacturer I would start the bidding at 1800 dollars minimum.
A lot you say? Definitely--
But how do you spend 40,000 dollars on a kitchen, 2,000 on a refrigerator, 1800 dollars on a stove, and overlook an item that will outlast all of these --AND add character to your kitchen that will bring your kitchen to the next level?
I am not a window salesman, but I think that money well spent in your home will bring you more enjoyment, and will increase the value of your home.
