B1344 - Stunning Set 4 Antique French Ormolu Empire Style Curtain Tie / Hold Backs 19thC
This is a stunning set of 4 antique French ormolu curtain tie / hold backs dating from the 1800's. They would certainly add an authentic château chic finishing touch to a curtain ensemble.
They are of good quality with excellent detail and definition to the casting of the metal.
The back plate has a quiver of arrows design and the fascia of the hook has a crossed torch and quiver of arrows tied with a beautiful bow with ribbon tails. Above this a pineapple finial adds the finishing touch to these beautiful pieces.
The gilding on the metal has subtly mellowed over the years whilst still retaining it's golden buttery hue which catches the light beautifully.
The tie backs have a strap on the reverse of the back plate and can be fixed by hanging them on a hook. There is an old, good quality, soldered repair to the strap of one of the hold backs (please see photos).
They measure approx :- H 18 cm (7 inches) x W 5 cm (2 inches) x D 14 cm (5.5 inches).
A gorgeous set of hold backs to add a château chic statement. They are from a carefully selected collection of antique French curtain accessories at 'La Belle Étoffe'!
