This is a magnificent and regal pair of antique French bronze ormolu curtain tie / hold backs in the Rococo style and dating from about 1880.

The back plate is highly decorative with an acanthus leaf scroll and a shell crest. The fascia of the hook has laurel and oak leaf garlands extending upwards to meet a further shell crest.
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 20 cm (8 inches) x W 8 cm (3 inches) x D 17 cm (6.75 inches).
A magnificent pair of tie backs to add a château chic statement.
Another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe!
