Pair of Tall 19th C French Wrought Iron Gates
Yes, we do have a thing for gates, particularly early and high-quality ones like this tall pair of hand-wrought iron gates that date to around 1830. Their size, intricate detailing, and romantic feel make them the perfect sentinels for your enclosed garden or they would look equally well mounted on stone gate piers at the entrance to your home. In excellent condition, they have no breaks, cracks, replaced parts or repairs, and presently sport slightly-chippy white paint that is perhaps 30 years old, with small bits of surface rust showing through. A latch would need to be fashioned in order to keep them closed, and they do not have hinges, but are an easy mount with pre-drilled holes near the top and bottom. If you are not keen on the white paint, they can be sandblasted and repainted to your custom specifications for a modest upcharge. Please note that the dimensions below are for the 2 pieces when they abut each other.
