Product description

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.

Each recess curtain pole will need two handmade recess brackets We advise that you have 1 ring per 10cm (minimum) of curtain pole. Do ensure you have an equal number of rings for each curtain.
