Curtain/Shutter/Other

This category is for everything (other than sash lifts & locks) that has to do with windows. Look here for antique & vintage curtain tie backs, curtain rod brackets, swing arm curtain rods, shutter knobs & latches - and anything else I find for your window décor. You might also check in Everything Else/Misc or Hooks since antique picture nails were frequently used to tie back curtains as well as hang pictures.
