    Just brought 4 oval shape brass things, some the pattern on it like some curtain design, I have no idea what is that, this is heavy, around 0.45 kg each. 5.5" Length and 3.75" width.
    Is it the curtain holders, maybe I am wrong.
    Is there any collectors see that before?
    Please let me know.
    Thanks!

      No idea.....but on the last pic there appears to be some marks or writing on one of the items. The closest one - on the right inside metal part.....at least I think I see something there.....??

      Curtain rings don't aren't usually patterned in this way, you would want the curtain material to run unhindered on the ring. They're also a bit too heavy for draperies.

      I hope you can find someone to help figure out what they were used for.

      Kyra - You are amazing. Not only do you Kyratise broken beautiful things, but you've discovered what these objects are. What made you think of anklets? Great ID.
    6. Gillian, 4 years ago
      They're not cheap either.
    7. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Ha ha Gillian, thank you for the compliment!
      I've seen these before, among millions of things, but my culture which may seem vast, is... superficial on most I remember ;-D
