B1137 - SOLD
This is a fabulous 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 pair of château curtains. They would look superb in a country house interior.
They each have a large, plumptious tassel hanging on their multi- corded woolen ropes. The colours are subtle shades of teal, gold, pink, grey & lemon.
Each tassel is held on a silk covered wooden core and has a thick central section of woolen threads in the mixed muted colours. This is overlain with a 'net' of intricately worked wool on which there are bobbles. Further larger, bobbles hang from the 'net' to surround the central tassel. The resultant effect is breathtaking!
The tie backs are fully functional. The ropes and tassels are good and strong. The silk has fluffed & worn a little over the years giving the tie backs their wonderful timeworn appearance.
Each tie back measures approx. 69 cm ( 27 inches) from the back of the cord loop to the end of the tassel. The tassel itself measures 24 cm (9.5 inches) from the point of insertion of the ropes.
A fabulous pair of tie backs to add an authentic château chic statement to an interior. They are from a carefully selected collection of antique curtains & curtain accessories at 'La Belle Étoffe'.
