Thanks Rick and Don! Thank you for the notes! I went to the indicated web site, and they do have the larger louvers. I think that they are only inside shutters from that company, but in searching links from their site I think that I did find some external shutters with larger louvers, called "plantation" shutters? They seem to have larger louvers, though I would worry if there is some other odd style difference (my house is by no means a "plantation" house)! So maybe they work, and maybe they don't. I also note that all of these - anything I can find new - are all "flat" whereas mine have an additional piece of wood perpendicular to the frame that makes the shutters look different than without the piece. Mine look distinctly older, in that they are more "detailed" looking, even though they are obviously what would have been considered standard or plain at the time. So I'm still looking for shutters that look like they would truly have been used back 150 years or so. You got me closer, though!
As to repair of my existing, I have two problems. First, despite the fact that I have kept all the pieces, a number of them have lost too much wood to even consider repairing. But worse than that, a previous owner had replaced a number of them with the more contemporary replacements that look obviously different. I want to re-outfit the whole house with a matching set, returning all windows to the older, not the contemporary, style.
I suppose there is always salvage, but in shutter-hunts I've done in the past finding the right height/width/style combination is very difficult, and involves driving many miles and multiple trips...
