Rundlet-May House

Lance-form Curtain Cornice

This lance-shaped curtain cornice is one of a set of three that adorn the walls above the windows in the formal parlor of Rundlet-May House. Although the original curtains that hung from this cornice do not survive, they were probably similar to ones published in fashionable English magazines-colorful drapery swags and curtain panels trimmed with elaborate tassels and fringe.
