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.

The Cannonball finial is also available with the thicker, 25mm curtain pole range. Click here for details.

Each Made by the Forge product comes with a lifetime guarantee and will enhance your window space with a blend of the classic and contemporary.

"Authentic timeless British design and
British blacksmithing at it's best."
Elena Paparozzi, Heals

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.

Not every window is suitable for a curtain pole mounted on the room facing surface of the wall. For tighter spaces, please visit our recess curtain pole section and find your perfect fit.

"Made by the Forge's ironwork displays a consistently
high quality and is beautifully handcrafted. I know
I can rely on Richard to deliver the goods."
Ngila Boyd, Interior Design, Chelsea
