What are brackets?
Brackets are a decorative architectural element common in Victorian style and historical replication buildings, included where the exterior wall of a building meets the underside of an arch, balcony, or overhanging eaves. Brackets can be made out of wood, metal, stone, or a variety of other building materials, and help to carry weight or strengthen angles.
Brackets can be used indoors or outdoors, and are commonly used under window ledges, shelves, eaves, balconies, window boxes, and more. Most brackets are decorative, but some brackets also have structural functionalities.
