Old pair of Chinese bed curtain hooks, hand cast pierced and engraved sheet brass, comprises an extended floral head and a rounded hook. The flowers are plum blossoms. Each with birds flying among the flowers.
Such hooks were designed for use in Java by the local Chinese in their wedding or bridal beds in conjunction with fine mosquito netting or fine silk drapes that were pulled back and gathered behind the hook during the day. The beds were typically elaborately carved and of four-poster format. The open sides were hung with curtains which were closed at night.
These hooks are light in the hand. They are in good condition with no losses. There are no maker’s marks.
Dimensions: 4.5″ x 0.1″ x 9″
