"I extremely happy with the quality of the rods"
The brass handles are actually CURTAIN RODS!! I got them from Signature Things (they also have some GREAT hardware!), and not only am I extremely happy with the quality of the rods, but their customer service was EXCELLENT! Truly. I had several questions, and the owner, Manoj, answered all of them in detail.
Something neat and different…I was able to order the handles in a brass finish that is aged by hand! You know how when you buy Unlacquered Brass, it is pretty shiny, and you have to wait for it to tarnish a tad to get the patina you are going for? Well, Signature Things perceived a hole in the market, so they created their own process. You can tell them heavy aging, light aging, etc. Since I had never ordered anything patinaed like this, I was unsure of how it would look, and I was super pleased when I received the brass rods and brackets!
