Brass Curtain Hardware

The typical curtain hardware used in Arts & Crafts style homes at the turn-of-the-century was simple and functional. Fortunately these brass fixtures are still available today. We offer two sizes, 3/8 inch and 3/4 inch diameter.

The smaller, 3/8", is appropriate for most uses and can span up to 44" between supports (a bit less for very heavy curtains). If the windows are quite large, and you do not wish to have the panels in sections as the supports on the 3/8" rod would necessitate, then the 3/4" rods are preferable. For different types of openings, such as French doors or for doorways with portieres, differing sized rods may be used.
