Highlighted by a turned shaft and a pair of fleur de lys terminals, this antique wrought iron architectural was hand-forged in France during the 1800’s. The fleur de lys are attached to the end of the center element by a rectangular brace, which was forge welded (i.e. hammered) around the connection points. Exposure to the elements has caused the iron to develop a fantastic, oxidized patina. It would make a fantastic door pull when installed in a vertical fashion. Another option is to use it horizontally as a hanging rod for hand towels or a small tapestry fragment.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with light buildup and oxidation, resulting in a lovely natural patina. When installing as an architectural fixture, attachment points would need to be added to ensure functionality. Please see photos for details.
