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

The back plate has a decorative acanthus leaf design which continues into the fascia of the hook.
The gilding on the tie backs has mellowed over the years to a matt finish in a lovely old gold hue. There are areas of patination and variation in colour which adds character to these wonderful old hooks.
The tie backs have a strap on the reverse of the back plate for hanging on a hook..
They measure :- H 20 cm (8 inches) x W 7.5 cm (3 inches) x D 17.5 cm (7 inches).
A fabulous pair of tie backs to add a château chic statement and another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe!
