Vault lights were patented in 1845 by the eccentric inventor named Thaddeus Hyatt. His design improved on impractical earlier designs featuring a single fragile pane by substituting “a considerable number of small glasses, or lenses, which are set into the iron cover, as effectually to defend them from injury by the falling or pressure of weighty bodies upon them.”
