Alternative Designs for a Metal Gate

Active selection in cart:
Vertical rectangle. An arched, iron gate divided into three sections: a semi-circular panel above and two vertical leaves below. The semi-circular section has a half-rosette in the lower center with balusters radiating from it like spokes of a wheel. The framing arched band shows a repeating palmette motif in the the left half and a Greek key motif in the right half. These motifs are respectively used in the framing borders of the left and right leaves. The right leaf is divided into two main panels and a small base panel. The two oblong panels contain vertical round bars; the lower base panel is a solid rectangle. The right leaf is framed on all sides and between the two oblong panels with the repeating Greek key motif. The left leaf is divided into two main panels, each of which consists of an oblong panel with baluster-shaped bars. These two panels are divided by a band, subdivided into three compartments, with alternative suggestions for the decoration of the larger panels. A smaller upper and lower panel is decorated with a column capital-like motif. The left leaf is framed on four sides by a band of palmettes. Made in: Italy. Date: 1810s.
