As Beeswax is a natural wax it can sometimes rub off onto curtain fabric - especially very light coloured fabric. If you are concerned about this, please choose Matt Black finish instead.

Poles over 2 metres in length will need a centre bracket and be supplied in 2 pieces.
(ceiling brackets also available)
We advise that you have 1 ring per 10cm (minimum) of curtain pole. Do ensure you have an even number of rings for each curtain.

The Bradfield Button Finial

Our Bradfield Button 16mm curtain poles feature a traditional button finial, consisting of a wrought iron pole followed by a larger diameter button. This classic minimalist design will compliment a wide range of styles of décor, whilst also preventing the curtain rings from slipping off the end of the pole.

Every curtain pole and finial is unique, brimming with personality and charm. Each of our products comes with a lifetime guarantee and will enhance any window space with a blend of the classic and contemporary, with quality assured to match.

Enhance your window space with a set of matching, hand-made curtain holdbacks from our complete range. They are available with your choice of finial.

We’ve decided to name each of our new range of 16mm finials after places that are all part of the Made by the Forge story, places where we have planted trees. The Bradfield Button Finial is named after the extraordinary Bradfield Wood in Suffolk which has been carefully managed for over 750 years. Dormice will hugely benefit from the formation of hedgerows allowing safe passage from the woodland to an ancient copse. This ticks the final box of one of the seven points of success for reintroduced species; colonisation away from the initial area of reintroduction.

We started planting trees ourselves in 2009 on a hill in Willisham called Soots Meadow and carried on planting for three years before we teamed up with environmental agencies and volunteers.

"Hi, received the curtain pole yesterday and love it!
We installed it and it looks and fits great. Thank you again!”
