Seller: pywacketantiques (2,460) 100%, Location: Steep Falls, Maine, Ships to: US, CA, Item: 192038907129 TWO LARGE ORNATE FRENCH DRAPERY CURTAIN TIEBACKS BRASS w/ PORCELAIN ROSEBUDS Two beautiful Victorian Embossed/Repousse brass drapery curtain tiebacks. Each measure approximately 9 3/4" long including the hoop, and approximately 4" wide at the widest point. The "bouquet" alone measures approximately 6 3/4" long. They are heavily embossed with a pattern of rose leaves, flowers with a faux bois stem. I have seen this type of tie back before, but I have never seen them embellished with porcelain rosebuds, pink and white, set into brass fittings that are wired through to the back of the tieback. Truly wonderful. One tieback has three rosebuds, one has only two, it has lost a rosebud somewhere along the way. These are in excellent condition for their age. The tieback with two rosebuds has a soldered repair at the stem. This can be seen on the front under close examination. The other tieback has some more modern epoxy applied to the back to secure the rosebuds and the hoop. This repair cannot be seen from the front. There are no major bends, no rips or tears in the metal. The gold finish on the front is uneven, as one would expect with something of this age, but the overall look is a bright brassy gold.
