The Houghton Finial - A Large 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 hammermarks during the forging process. This means that every curtain pole and finial is different; bursting with personality and charm.

Our Houghton 16mm curtain poles feature a large button finial. Different to our other finials, this is a much thicker design of button constructed from solid wrought iron. Simplisitic in style, it will fit into most forms of modern or contemporary décor perfectly, whilst also serving their primary function of preventing the curtain rings from sliding off of the end of the pole.

"The curtain poles are beautifully made and look great. Well worth the money and the wait to have them made to measure. We ordered from you about four years ago but have recently moved and had to leave them behind as they wouldn’t fit in the new place ( the buyers were extremely pleased!). I wouldn’t buy from anyone else."

Product description

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.

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 and places where we have planted trees.

We named the Houghton Finial after the famous coastal estate in north Norfolk. If you remember the wide-open sand flats at the end of Shakespeare in Love, that’s Houghton beach.

We will be planting nearly 4,000 trees this year at the estate in February 2021. For more details please click here.
