Fancy fretwork to call attention to a door, window or niche, brackets as decoration or support for shelves and countertops, valances, plaques and rosettes to fill a space or act as an accent or adornment. Rigid, strong and very nearly everlasting, these cast iron pieces may be naturally aged or rusted when left outdoors, are suitable for painting and beautify gracefully.
