THESE TIE BACKS WORK JUST LIKE THE BRASS ROSETTES. Rosettes, also called tiebacks or medallions. They work well for creating window treatments that leave decorative molding on view and for dressing challenging window shapes, such as arch windows. Rosettes also function as holdbacks for curtains or drapes to secure them in an open position at the sides of the window frame. Description Generally, the rosette has a screw on the back that fits a holdback post. Certain styles have a screw attached to the end of the rosette post. Options Depending on the desired effect, rosettes can support curtain panels, swags or valances. A money-saving look involves hanging a curtain panel on one side of a window or on each side of a large window with rosettes as a "stationary drape," a window treatment that doesn't require as much fabric as traditional drapes. Another option is to drape a valance or scarf from a rosette at one side of the frame to a rosette at the other side of the frame and loop the fabric around each post so that the fabric frames the window 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed If you ever purchase something from me, that you are not 100% satisfied, I will refund your money in full upon receipt of the returned item, less shipping.
