Waisted Spirals

Iron Gates For Sale

These are really a nice set of iron gates. They are definitely pre war and probably date to the 1920's. All hand wrought and heavy as f*#@. They measure about 56 1/2" tall and about 34" wide.

Some of you may not understand my attraction to things like this. Let me explain it like this. These gates were made entirely by a black smiths hands at a time when men actually worked for a living. That man had hands like catchers mitts and calluses as thick as pink pet erasers. He created functional works of art that will outlast us all and I like that.
