The Cannonball finial, 20mm iron curtain pole

Our superb curtain poles and finials are handcrafted by expert blacksmiths. Take a closer look at the finial and you will see the hammer marks still visible from the forging process.

The classic Cannonball design finial is as popular now as it ever has been. Originally designed to be a literal full stop at the end of curtain pole to prevent the curtain from slipping off the end, the finial has now become a decorative feature all by itself. More »
