BEAUTIFUL HUGE & DECADENT ANTIQUE FRENCH CHATEAU CURTAIN TASSEL TIE BACKS c1880
Please scroll down for more pictures.
This is a magnificent pair of antique French chateau curtain tassel tie backs that date from the 1880s.
Such wonderful textile confections that could hold back the largest of sweeping curtain drapes. They also look superb hung as swags at curtain tops too.
The colours are soft very pale blue grey , the ropes a little paler and the tassel ends slightly richer blue hues.
Each tie back really is a work of art. Each tie back hasone large tassel ends ( so there aretwo in all in the pair) . The top of the tassel is made up of silk covered wooden spools overlaid with silklattice coils. The base is an array of long twisted silk coils.
The thick twisted rope ties have a central fitting of another silk covered wooden spool that allows the ties to be altered in size which would either raise or lower the tassel ends as required.
There is some wear to the silk covered wooden spools as is to be expected with age and wear. This does not detract and simply gives them an air of faded grandeur and leaves no doubt as to their antiquity.
Each of the tassel ends from the top wooden ball spool measures 9" (23cms) long.
The length from the back of the tie ropes to the tassel ends is 28" (72cms).
The colours are all very easy on the eye and the textiles a mix of silk and linen are all good and strong.
