Dear Don,
I don´t know how this kind of window is named elsewhere, but in Brazil it is a "guilhotina".
In TT the reference to the French Revolution in "lunette" is quite clear, but I think that it is worth checking if VN could not have been linking the guillotine and this kind of corporeal punishment as shown in the cartoon.
