B508 - SOLD
This is a magnificent pair of antique French ormolu curtain tie / hold backs in the Empire 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 fabulous quality with substantial weight (each one weighs over a kilo) and excellent detail and definition to the casting of the metal.
The back plate is very decorative with an acanthus leaf design. The fascia of the hook has an acanthus leaf crest below which is a faux ribbon tie. On the back of the hook is an impressive pineapple finial.
The tie backs have a strap on the reverse of the back plate and can be fixed by hanging them on a hook.
They measure :- H 23 cm (9 inches) x W 5.5 cm (2.25 inches) x D 21 cm (8.25 inches).
A magnificent pair of tie backs to add a château chic statement and another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe!
