We only have ever seen ONE of these unusual tiebacks and here it is -- a clearly Victorian era-created curtain tie-back -- made with a bridle rosette top. This interesting piece apparently began as the domed top for a horse harness accessory or jewelry, but instead, was finished for household decorating use with a screw-in backing instead of a D-ring or pin.

What an intriguing find (or gift) for anyone who enjoys these old Victorian glass dome decorations that began as harness attachments!!
Actually using it displays it the most effectively! Attach it on a wall or window frame to hold a curtain -- or be creative: use it to hold the handle of a silk or dried flower arrangement? in the kitchen to hold a small towel ? here is a great opportunity to think outside the box.

SIZE: Approximately 1-3/4 inch diameter across, 1/2 inch tall glass dome, and a 1-1/4 inch long screw permanently attached to the back.

CONDITION - Absolutely lovely: a bright, cheerful, multi-color Victorian transfer die-cut of cabbage roses, smaller flowers and greenery that "floats" atop a silvery mirror backing, set under a glass dome. The glass is crystal clear with no scratches, scuffs or cloudiness. The brass backing is crimped extremely tightly around the glass, and the brass screw is solidly attached.

We were so surprised to find this in a grouping of actual bridle rosettes, but here it is! An interesting addition to a collection of harness rosettes. It's the only one we've ever come across.
