B426 - SOLD
This is a magnificent and regal pair of antique French ormolu curtain tie / hold backs in the Rococo style and dating from about 1880.
They are large and grand and would hold back a very substantial pair of château curtains.
They are of excellent quality with wonderful detail and definition to the casting of the metal.
The back plate is highly decorative with a pineapple crest and acanthus leaf swags. The fascia of the hook has a magnificent urn swagged with a laurel leaf garland. The hook is also decorated and has an acanthus leaf finial and scrolls.
The gilding has mellowed over the years to a fabulous subtle old gold.
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 21 cm (8.25 inches) x W 6 cm (2.3 inches) x D 16 cm (6.25 inches).
A magnificent pair of tie backs to add a château chic statement and another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe!
