B893 - SOLD
This is a magnificent pair of huge antique French ormolu curtain pole holders dating from the 1800's. They would certainly add a truly stunning château chic finishing touch to a curtain pole.
The fascia of each holder has a central floral medallion with a laurel leaf border and a gorgeous ribbon and bow crest.
The holders have their original spikes to hold them in to the masonry of the wall and there is a hole at the bottom of each to take a screw. Behind the fascia is a bracket upon which the pole would sit.
The pole holders are very large and sturdy and would take a substantial pole.
The gilding on the ormolu has mellowed over the years to a lovely old gold hue.
Each pole holder measures :- H 42 cm (16.5 inches) x W 10.5 cm (4.25 inches) x D 20 cm (8 inches). The depth is the actual distance that the holder would project from the wall and therefore does not include the spike.
A magnificent pair of curtain pole holders to add a château chic statement and another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe!
