Superb Pair Antique French Rope & Tassel Chateau Curtain Tie / Hold Backs, 19th C - B1135. Please scroll down for lots of photo's, description & dimensions. This is a superb pair of antique French tassel curtain tie backs dating from the 1800's.
They would look perfect in a country house interior and would hold back a substantial pair of curtains. They each have a large, plumptious tassel hanging on their multi- corded wool ropes. The colours are lovely shades of green and ochre and have a subtlety that only comes with age. Each tassel is held on a silk covered wooden core and has a central section of bullion cords. This is overlain with a'net' of intricately worked silk threads on which hang further little tassels.
The tie backs are in good antique condition. The silk has fluffed a little over the years but the ropes and tassels are good and strong.One of the tie backs is slightly longer than the other but when in use this should not show. The longer one measures 72 cm (28.25 inches) from the back of the cord loop to the end of the tassel. The shorter one measures 64 cm (25.25 inches) from the back of the cord loop to the end of the tassel. Each tassel measures 22 cm (8.75 inches) from the point of insertion of the ropes. A superb pair of tie backs to add an authentic château chic statement to an interior. They are from a carefully selected collection of antique curtains and curtain accessories at'La Belle Étoffe'.
