16mm Handmade Iron Recess Curtain Poles

An iron curtain pole that fits neatly in a window recess using our handmade recess brackets.

Not every window is suitable for a curtain pole mounted on the surface of the wall, for deeply recessed windows we developed our recess curtain pole. A bespoke wrought iron curtain pole designed to fit neatly in a window recess, using handmade recess brackets.

Choose from a matt black finish or a natural beeswax finish. Both finishes are traditional and will enhance the beauty of the wrought iron pole.

The bracket has a tiny hole to pass a thread through to keep the curtain from sliding all the way across the pole when pulled or drawn.

Made by the Forge believe in exceptional quality and simple, yet elegant designs. We handcraft beautiful wrought iron products that will last a lifetime.

See our full range of 16mm curtain pole finials.

We also offer recess poles in 12mm, 20mm and 25mm diameters.

"Just wanted to offer my warm thanks for the recess curtain poles. They are lovely quality and are already in place in our recesses with new curtains!"
