B359 - SOLD
This is a divine 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 pair of substantial château curtains.
Each tie back has two large and plumptious tassels on the end of the multi- corded ropes. The colours are absolutely gorgeous rich jewel shades and have a subtlety that only comes with age. There are several shades of reds and greens, coral, turquoise, yellow, taupe and cream.
The silk on the wooden cores has a more mellow palette with terracotta being the predominant colour, highlighted with cream, taupe, gold, red, a soft green and a bright pink.
The tie backs are fully functional but have timeworn over the years. This does not detract and adds character to these wonderful old period pieces.
These tie backs measure 76 cm ( 30 inches) from the back of the cord loop to the end of the tassel. The tassel cords alone measure 17 cm (6.75 inches).
We have a pair of gorgeous tapestry château curtains in our other listings which we found these tie backs on. The combination of the two is breathtaking and they look made for each other.
