Antique Hardware

It seems like you never get tired of finding new ways to prove “they don’t make them like they used to,” as things get ever more cheaply made.  One more for the hopper: drapery hardware, specifically barrel sockets for hanging sheers.  I was upstate foraging in a drawer in an antique store, and found these beautiful brackets, and at $2 a pair, worth it to buy them just to admire the heft and quality. I like the matching rings as well! I photographed them with the today’s equivalent.
