Originally serving as a balcony barrier on a French-style building in Argentina, this wrought iron railing was produced in the early 1900’s. We have repurposed the iron into a console table with a hand-cut pitched limestone top. At over two inches thick, the cream limestone with white inclusions makes a nice juxtaposition to 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 of different thickness that are joined by roundels. Large rinceaux with volute scroll sprouts emanate from the outer oval in both directions. The top and sides are comprised of geometric shapes once again joined by roundels.
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 caused from acceptable loss of paint. The iron railing is antique, but the supportive ironwork and limestone top are recent. Please see photos for details.
