This is a gorgeous set of 4 antique French gilded metal curtain tie / hold backs dating from the 1800's. They would certainly add a château chic finishing touch to a curtain ensemble.

The tie backs have a strap on the reverse of the back plate and can be fixed by hanging them on a hook.
They measure approx. :- H 14 cm (5.5 inches) x W 5.5 cm (2.25 inches) x D 13 cm (5 inches) .
This divine set of tie backs is from a carefully selected collection of antique French curtains and curtain accessories at 'La Belle Étoffe'.
