A Few Hang Ups

As part of the holiday decorating, we took down the toile curtains and will be replacing them with more festive fabrics. However, it gave me a good opportunity to show you the unique window hardware we have. There are two long rods that span the entire length of the windows and are fastened at either end by a threaded nut to a double bracket. Then in the middle there is a double goose neck support. I believe everything is made from brass. We also have the brackets for original cotton roller shades. One of the goose neck support brackets broke off (they just thread directly into the wood) a couple years ago and I haven't been able to find a replacement piece. Either I'm not googling the right words or there just isn't much info on Arts & Crafts window treatments.
