Empire type gilt stamped brass window valances, continental, 19th century. The design uses a row of bosses above anthemion between scrolls. The brass is very thin and the gilt is still brilliant. They make a bold and dramatic cornice for your curtains. Each is composed of brass sections so that you can adjust to other sizes by using different backing boards. These come with the existing later boards.
