B1250 - Impressive Pair Antique French Empire Style Gilded Curtain Tie / Hold Backs
This is an impressive and regal pair of antique French gilded metal curtain tie / hold backs in the Empire style and dating from about 1880.
They are large and grand and would hold back a very sustantial pair of château curtains.
They are of lovely quality with excellent detail and definition to the casting of the metal.
The back plate is highly decorative with scrolled acanthus leaf detail and a pine cone crest. The crest on the fascia of the hook reflects that of the back plate and has pierced scrolled laurel leaf detail below.
The gilding has mellowed over the years to a fabulous old gold hue.
The tie backs have a strap on the back of the top plate and can be fixed by hanging them on a hook.
They measure :- H 19 cm (7.5 inches) x W 8 cm (3.1 inches) x D 14 cm (5.5 inches) approx.
A superb pair of tie backs to add a château chic statement and another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe!
