EXAMPLES OF ANTIQUE DRAPERY RODS FROM THE KIRSCH RANGE OF THE 1930's
KIRSCHKRAFT Cut-to-Measure Flat Rods are in good proportion to the window, which means attractive appearance. They are cut to measure and assembled to fit your windows.
The standard finishes of KirschKraft StippleTone Cut-to-Measure Rod are: brass (15), statuary bronze (80), and old ivory (17). All finishes are rust-proof and guaranteed against tarnishing or peeling.
This is the only drapery hardware adapted to the proper draping treatment of present day steel casement windows with or without plaster trim. Truly modern in every respect.
It is furnished with or without traverse (draw cord) equipment. We urge you to seriously consider the traversed rod, (necessary slides, pulleys and weights assembled with Kirsch- Kraft Cut-to-Measure Rod so draperies and curtains may be opened or closed with a touch of the hidden cord).
KirschKraft Cut-to-Measure Rods fitted with traverse equipment are not expensive. With all its advantages, this truly modern equipment costs no more per installation than old fashioned round rods with draw cords.
Where curtains are shirred, KirschKraft Cut-to-Measure Rod, because of its flat shape, supports and keeps the French headings erect. This does away with the annoying drooping of headings so common on round rodding.
