The inspiration for our Jane Austen Collection came from the BBC classic television series. In many scenes I saw pictures hung in this manner. It makes perfect sense, if you have high ceilings, and don't want to "lose" your rosette way up at the picture rail. We have designed these so that you can slide the rosette up or down on the cord and position it where ever you like. If you see a picture hanger that you like, but that is not in this section, email me, as I may be able to adapt it to this method.
