As curtains became more
elaborate in the 19th century, so did
the eye-catching hardware that held
them in place.
Wrought iron medallions sheathed in brass.
Swathing windows not only helped
cut down on drafts in neoclassical America but also made a fashion statement!
Opalescent glass, embossed brass, lacy pressed glass, gilt and lacquers were used to catch the candlelight in period rooms.
Displayed on a side table as objects of art or used to cinch back modest floor length panels of silk, cotton, or linen, this window jewelry adds period flavor & decorative dimension to any room!
