storm window for leaded glass sash

Our home was built in '28 and has some nice leaded glass windows facing the street. Years ago the owners installed aluminum combination storm/screens and they sort of spoil the appearance of the front of the house. On a web site I read a suggestion to use some type of "interior" storm window to better show off decorative windows to the outside. Any suggestions of a design for doing this?

Look in the yellow pages for windows, glass and awning stores. What you want to ask for are invisible storm windows. These are installed from the outside but stores that have them usually have interior storm windows too.

My experience with both interior and exterior storm windows concerning leaded glass windows goes back several years. The only bad experience with leaded glass windows was when the window was exposed to a lot of sun. With either storm window, this created a green house effect. In other words, it got too warm between the leaded glass window and the storm window, which caused the leaded glass window to bow. The solution in every case was to install an invisible exterior storm window that had a Low-E film applied to the storm. This film also had a low Solar Heat Gain Coefficient.
