French Antique Tie Backs Hook Pair Bronze Curtain Drapery Hardware
Lovely Pair of Antique French Bronze Ormolu Drapery Tie Back Hooks in a Floral Basket Pattern. The following is a set of instructions from my business associate in France that may be useful for you to mount these French tiebacks - "The old ornate drapery hooks have a primitive method of fixing. The small horizontal bar on the back of the plate hooks over a small 'L'-shaped screw hook. If there is a hole as well it is to take a nail which goes into the plaster or wood paneling for extra security; often there is no hole for the nail. More recent drapery hooks have the conventional screw fixing. The original versions of these screw hooks were usually crude and often hand made by the artisan for the job in hand; if fixed into plaster they just rust away."
