A beautiful and massive pair of period Federal tie backs, a full 6" in diameter! These beauties are ready to be installed and used with a tasseled cord or by themselves, either way they will add that "WOW" factor to your drapery scheme with their deeply modeled fronts and impressive size. Likely used originally for bed hangings, their application today is limited only by your imagination.

Condition is grand. The gilding is still bright with only minor wear, most noticeable at the center which adds an appealing mixed-metal touch. Each piece measures 6" in diameter, and projects about 7" from the wall when installed. The screw is 1 1/4" long with no point, which suggests a date prior to 1825.

If you've been looking for a pair of tie backs like this, you know just how difficult it is to find them in this size and condition Think of them as jewelry for your home or project, I don't know when or where you'll see another pair as nice as these. Sublime.
