Portiere Rod

It isn't just windows we like to frame with stunning poles. Our talented blacksmiths also hand forge beautiful wrought iron portiere rods, allowing you to dress your doors with as much style as your windows. Traditionally, windows get all the attention when it comes to curtains, but some doors would significantly benefit from a door curtain, or a Portière, which can create the feeling of being snug in a warm house, protected from the elements by a decorative curtain.

Product specification

Material: Solid 20mm iron bar.

Each wrought iron portiere rod is attached to a handmade bracket which screws to the wall and allows the rod full movement (given the room) of 180 degrees. The pole is made to measure for either left or right opening doors.

Bracket size: 50mm wide x 140mm deep.

Finials: Cannonball, Ram's Horn, Thumper, Button, Ball and Twisted Cage.

Finish: Choose from a matt black finish or a natural beeswax finish. Both finishes are traditional and will enhance the beauty of the wrought iron pole.

Curtain rings: We advise 10 rings per metre of curtain pole. Curtain rings are the same finish as your portiere door curtain pole.
