Originally serving as a balcony barrier on a French-style building in Argentina, this wrought iron railing was produced circa 1900. We have repurposed the iron into a console table with a beveled limestone top. At over two inches thick, the hand-cut beige limestone with cream and black speckled inclusions meshes well with the painted black iron.

The railing features some stunning ironwork arranged symmetrically around a central fleur de lys cartouche. The open lily flower is set inside two ovals that are joined by roundels. Large rinceaux with volute scroll sprouts emanate from the outer oval in both directions.

A rectangular border runs along the outside of the cartouche and rinceaux. Two roughly rectangular panels are affixed to the top of the border and are separated by an open disc. The three elements are connected to each other and the border below by a series of roundels. Similar ironwork can be seen on the bottom of the border, with the disc being replaced by an open square. The sides contain vertical rectangular panels between two more open squares.

This recently converted wrought iron balcony gate console with limestone top can be used in numerous styles of homes. It can be placed against a wall in a hall or entryway to make a great statement piece.

CONDITION: Wear commensurate to age and use with oxidation and loss to paint as seen in photos. The iron railing is antique, but the supportive ironwork and stone top are recent.
