This picture is not as clear as I would like...the long braided hangers are a twist of cream and pale green..the tops of the tassels are a tight knotted pale green followed by a pale silky round ball with pale green & cream stripes & surrounded at the bottom by a line of the tight knotted green..followed by a larger round ball described as above and then 5-1/2" of cream colored soft fringe. The total length is just about 24 inches. I have a total of 14 of these and each one is a double strand.
they are without question "antique" and quite beautiful..I was told they are called tassels but I do not know what they are used for. I will try to take some more pictures ..I took this one outside on a very sunny day..will try
taking more inside.
These came to me a long time ago when I purchased a large box of
old linens at a house sale.
I have been advised that these are not antique so I apologize. Also that they are used to draw back curtains. Must have been pretty heavy ones at that.
