The Carlton Finial - A Bespoke Multi-Button Finial

All of our curtain poles and finials are lovingly hand crafted and forged by our expert blacksmiths at our UK forge. A closer look will reveal unique patterns of indentations, formed by hammer marks during the forging process. This means that every curtain pole and finial is different; bursting with personality and charm.

Our Carlton 16mm curtain poles feature a bespoke, multi-button finial, consisting of 5 larger buttons which encapsulate 4 smaller buttons to form an almost-honeydipper type of shape. This is one of the largest finials in this range and has a very sturdy, confident aesthetic which complements the wrought iron well. Much like our other finials in this range, we feel that this design is completely unique to Made by the Forge and the blacksmiths that forged this idea for a finial.

Each of our products come with a lifetime guarantee and will enhance any window space with a blend of the classic and contemporary, with quality assured to match.

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 and places where we have planted trees.

Named after the Carlton Marshes Nature Reserve in Suffolk where the bulrushes sway in the wind, the Carlton Finial is reminiscent of the reed-like water plant.

We planted approximately 1,800 trees in collaboration with the Suffolk Wildlife Trust all around the development at Carlton Marshes Visitor Centre. They create and encourage more natural habitat and in the long term will form a corridor of brush that children can explore as if deep in the wilds of the countryside.

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.
