A Finishing Touch

antiques

As curtains became more
elaborate in the 19th century, so did
the eye-catching hardware that held
them in place.


French pressed opaque aqua glass.


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!
