It is our pleasure to offer for your consideration from our personal collection in our smoke free home:

A vintage, Mid-Century, Wide-Style 2" Metal Slat Venetian Blinds that are attached to a solid wood valance.  These blinds are fully adjustable up or down and the slats tilt to fully adjust.

These blinds are complete and all original.  They were installed new in a home of ours that was built in 1956, and they have never been off the window until we recently took them down to list them.  They have always been in a smoke free home.

The blind slats have fabric bindings and solid wood top and bottom pieces.  Tucked under the valance is a removable metal rod for hanging curtains.

The 2" wide metal slats are 20-3/4" long, and when the blinds are fully extended, they are 38-1/2" long, including the valance.

The valance is 28-5/8" long, 3-1/2" tall and is 4" deep.  Because the blinds were installed on a window that was up against a corner, they were not made to sit directly in the center of the valance, so there is a slight offset.  On the left side, they are 2-3/4" from the outside edge of the valance, and on the right side, they are 5-1/8" from the outside edge of the valance.  However, it would be quite easy to relocate and adjust the blinds in the valance very simply by re-drilling the 2 holes for the cords and re-setting the 2 mounting brackets for the blinds which are attached with 2 screws.

These Venetian Blinds are in very nice, original condition.  They are well made and are fully functional and work well.   However, these have age and have been used for over 50 years and they are not in new or in perfect condition, so please expect normal wear, imperfections and age that comes from being an item such as this that has been used and handled.  The metal slats are in nice undamaged condition.  The top slat has a very small bend along one edge, but because it is the very top slat, it is difficult to see.  The pieces that are made of wood show light edge wear and slight paint loss.  The fabric bindings are in nice condition and have no rips or tears, but they have slight discoloration, yellowing and dirt.  The cords are in very nice condition and have very little wear.  The plastic knobs on the cord ends have denting, but these are very easily replaceable.  These blinds could use a light cleaning and the mechanisms should be oiled.

Please contact us, before purchasing, if you have any questions or if you have any concerns that would be important to you in considering the purchase of this item, or if you need additional information or pictures in order to be able to make an informed decision to purchase and to make sure this item meets your needs.

We will pack this carefully, and will ship quickly.
