B1135 - Superb Pair Antique French Rope & Tassel Chateau Curtain Tie / Hold Backs, 19thC

This is a superb pair of antique French tassel curtain tie backs dating from the 1800's. They are full of timeworn faded grandeur and would hold back a substantial pairs of château curtains. They would look superb in a country house interior.

They each have a large, plumptious tassel hanging on their multi- corded wool ropes. The colours are lovely shades of green and ochre and have a subtlety that only comes with age.

Each tassel is held on a silk covered wooden core and has a central section of  bullion cords. This is overlain with a 'net' of  intricately worked silk threads on which hang further little tassels.

The tie backs are fully functional. The ropes and tassels are good and strong. The silk has fluffed a little over the years giving the tie backs their wonderful timeworn appearance.

One of the tie backs is slightly longer than the other but when in use this should not show.
The longer one measures 72 cm ( 28.25 inches) from the back of the cord loop to the end of the tassel.
The shorter one measures 64 cm (25.25 inches) from the back of the cord loop to the end of the tassel.
Each tassel measures 22 cm (8.75 inches) from the point of insertion of the ropes.

A superb set of tie backs to add an authentic château chic statement to an interior. They are from a carefully selected collection of antique curtains and curtain accessories at 'La Belle Étoffe'.
