This fabulous 4 section wrought iron gate from France has beautiful scrolling motifs throughout, and it is in excellent overall condition. Some of the tole motifs have been modestly highlighted with gold lacquer. The rest of the iron gate has a worn polish, which gives it a wonderful finish. The gate is completely hand wrought, with all connections being pinned. We chose the angle for the gates in the photos below, but due to their hinges, they can be installed either completely flat, or at 90 degrees, or any angle in between.
Their shape is high at the ends and middle, making them more interesting to the eye. Gates such as these can be used inside and out for various design applications. These can be used in the garden either as entrance gates, or as surrounds for a specific area. Inside, they can be used as fireplace gates or room dividers.
There are handles and a latch on either side at the center. These gates once graced a grand property in France in the early 1800s, and they have been kept very well ever since.
CONDITION: Excellent overall condition with minor rubs to finish and light rust.
