The Levington Finial - A Unique 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 Levington 16mm curtain pole feature a unique button finial, consisting of three button-like shapes merged together to form a dumbbell-like shape. This provides a slightly ‘chunkier’ feel than our conventional button finials, whilst also serving its primary function of preventing curtain rings from slipping off of the pole. This design is, as far as we can tell, completely unique to Made by the Forge and the blacksmiths that came up with the idea.

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.

The Levington finial is named after the Levington Lagoon Nature reserve looked after by the Suffolk Wildlife Trust on behalf of Suffolk Yacht Harbour Ltd. It’s shape is somewhat reminiscent of a marine buoy.

A new belt of trees was planted with the intention of softening the edge between grassland and woodland and increase the diversity of habitats. The Trust hoped this new habitat would attract whitethroat, blackcap and other warblers.

"We are so impressed with the quality of workmanship that has gone into our curtain fittings. The metal feels so heavy and strong and the finials are characterised by real craftsmanship. I have loved dealing with this firm. We had to wait for our order because the team are so busy, but this was clearly disclosed from the outset and the wait added to our sense of anticipation and enjoyment. I had to change the order slightly and the team could not have been more accommodating. It’s been a pleasure doing business with them and I am sure we will be repeat customers in the future.”
