Tiebacks > Pre-Civil War > 801 English Rattail™
(ca 1730-present)

shutter tieback - english rattailThe “English Rattail”™ shutter tieback is my interpretation of the most common tieback in the Colonial cities.

Manufactured in England and imported to the American ports, countless variations of the pattern still grace the historic streets of Philadelphia , New York , and the other coastal cities.

We’ve reproduced dozens of variants on this pattern and have seen twice that many others as well. I rolled together different elements from what I felt were the best early examples and came up with this pattern back in the early 80’s.

It’s been used on quite a few national park service projects. It’s hand hammered from a 1” x ¼” bar and a very three dimensional example of nice forge work.
