The Button 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.

Looking just like a large, handmade rivet, our Button finial will bring a practical simplicity in to your room. The Button has a 40mm round button forged into the ends designed to prevent curtain rings from slipping off the pole. More »
