Victorian Picture Hangers

Decoration in the home was not supported much in early Amana so any small touch that could be added, was,  and very much appreciated. These small pieces of decor were Victorian Sandwich glass knobs and picture hangers. They were one piece artworks done around 1890. The hangers had glass heads that was left to be displayed above the picture while a long wire held the picture below the nail. They were curtain throwbacks as well.The glass designs were copies of English and Irish cut and pressed glass made in Sandwich, Mass. between 1825 and 1888. It was a simple way to show some color and creativity in the home.
