Thumper finial, 20mm iron curtain pole

Our superb 20mm 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.

Our own tree planting pledge inspires the finial on this wrought iron curtain pole. The tool that we use to thump in tree roots was our inspiration for the Thumper finial. It differs from the classic Cannonball by having a forged, flattened end. More »
