Magnificent 19th C French Wrought Iron 24 Ft. Long Pergola with Original Brackets
This is truly a very special piece! Sourced from a bistro in Lyon, France, this massive curved-end wrought iron pergola is 24 feet long and features decorative rosettes, its original paint with surface rusting throughout, and four enormous hand-wrought brackets. The frame was originally inserted into a stone wall with the brackets supporting the 4 intersecting rails to provide shade for the bistro's diners. The original insertion parts are still on the brackets, but we have had a massive steel back railing constructed to support the entire structure, as the original one was left behind in the bistro's walls. The frame is now meant to be wall-mounted on a very sturdy wall. The frame separates into two 12 foot long pieces, making transport a bit more easy, but the total frame weight is around 2500 lbs, so a forklift is required to load and unload. A very special piece that you will never find again, it will make your garden!
