Curtain Poles

Curtain Poles

Our Traditional Curtain Poles are made of strong tubular steel with handmade finials and our solid Cottage Poles are forged in one piece for a rustic appearance.

Wrought Iron Curtain Poles and Accessories from Nigel Tyas Ironwork

We offer two styles of wrought iron curtain poles – all are precisely made to measure by our skilled blacksmiths and designed to last a lifetime.

Most of the curtain poles we produce are what we call our ‘Traditional’ poles. These come in three diameters with detachable finials in 15 beautiful designs. Traditional curtain poles can be made to any length (poles over 2.2m are made in two pieces). Please consult our Measuring Guide to help you measure your windows with confidence.

As our traditional curtain poles are made from high-quality, thick-walled tubular steel, they provide strength and rigidity, whilst at the same time minimising weight. This means that these hollow curtain poles are suitable for fitting to any type of wall. They are actually stronger then solid poles and less liable to flex under the weight of curtains no matter what the length. We therefore recommend our traditional wrought iron curtain poles for any size of window.

We also make solid wrought iron 'Cottage' poles. These beautiful poles are forged from a single piece of steel with a choice of five fixed finials.

Cottage curtain poles are available in two thicknesses and have a lovely rustic feel and appearance. Due to their weight, our cottage poles are suitable for smaller windows. We are happy to advise on this if you have any queries.

When it comes to fitting your curtain poles, you can be assured that here at Nigel Tyas Ironwork, we make a range of hand-forged curtain pole brackets to suit any fitting requirement.

We recommend a central bracket, in addition to end brackets, for poles over two metres in length.

We have lots of experience in helping our customers find solutions to all sorts of tricky fitting challenges too, and if necessary brackets can be made-to-measure for a perfect fit.

We also sell handmade curtain rings, curtain hooks, and accessories including holdbacks and tieback hooks.

Solid cottage poles come with a natural black finish and traditional wrought iron curtain poles are available in either natural black or light burnished steel - click here to read more about surface finishes.

We also make made-to-measure wrought iron portières with a single hinged bracket and a choice of handmade finials. These can be used to swing back and forth over doorways to keep out the cold. See portières

*Please note, any curtain poles made-to-measure over 2.2metres (2,200mm) in length are made in two parts to allow for shipping. These curtain poles are joined with a neat internal spigot and the discreet join is covered by the central wall bracket, required for this length of pole. (If for any reason you would prefer a long pole in one piece, this can be arranged but will incur a surcharge to cover specialist shipping costs.)

If you have any queries at all we are here to help. We do know it is important to feel confident in measuring and ordering your traditional poles, so please contact us on 01226 766618 or or email with any queries.
