Was that a Wright or Howe design element to insert the glass directly into the ceiling plaster? Great idea but weathering, cob webs and movement take their toll beyond the glass not to mention the single pane glass in colder climates.

You may be correct SDR. It looks like there may be two screw holes visible on the left top edge which would not be left exposed like that.
