Tiebacks > Pre-Civil War > 802 Soldier™
(ca 1730 ~ 1860)

shutter tieback - soldierThe “Soldier Tieback”™ is another pattern with roots in Colonial America. It, too, has any number of surviving examples, each as different as its maker.

The name came from one of C. S. Forester’s novels wherein Captain Horatio Hornblower was pacing the streets of early 19th century London and noticed the shutter tiebacks “lined like a row of soldiers down the street”.

I associate this pattern with the southern states – you see more of them south of the Mason-Dixon than north.
