Using brass window fittings throughout a period home is an elegant way of complimenting certain features. For our recent Suffolk Barn Renovation, the warmth of our Antiqued Brass compliments the historic oak structure. Being a natural finish (much like the natural texture and tones of wood), the patina will continue to age and deepen over time – the perfect modern rustic finishing touch.
Our fabulous collection of made to measure curtain poles are the ideal companion for your curtains, ensuring they will continue to look good for years, in whichever room you hang them. They are hand forged from high quality brass, and with a choice between Reeded or Plain Antiqued Brass, you can pair each design with a matching finial and brackets for a unified natural look for your period home. If your pole is over 200cm long you will require a centre bracket. Longer poles may be supplied in two halves, complete with joiner. Don’t forget to ensure there is room for your chosen accessories…
Our popular Antiqued Brass Ball Finials are the perfect companion for your brass curtain poles. All of our finials are designed to slide into the end of our brass curtain poles and have a classic, weighty quality to enhance your authentic décor. Though a practical solution to keep everything in place, finials also frame your window and allow for decorative creativity. We offer traditional and modern styles to complement your home, ensuring each hand-crafted design is the most beautiful it can be.
These Brass Standard Brackets will lift your curtain poles and frame your windows with elegance. Hand finished like the rest of the accessories, these practical supports still look pretty. Because we make all our iron work in our Suffolk forge, we can adapt our brackets if necessary to suit your particular window: you may for instance need a deeper bracket for a deeper window so as not to spoil the hang of your curtains. Whichever style you choose, we’ve forged these beautifully finished antiqued brass hoops to match. You can calculate the number of rings you need by dividing the length of your pole (in cm) by 7. Simple!

Our Antiqued Brass products are created from natural, un-lacquered brass and will continue to age and develop a darker dull patina over time in your home. This is particularly hastened in harsh outdoor or damper environments. To decelerate this aging process we recommend regular polishing with a good quality brass polish and a soft cloth. Please note that chemical polishes can strip away the original antiquing solution too, so take care to use cleaning products sparingly to retain the aged look of the product.
