Anyone who has been on my FB page or has followed this blog for any length of time knows that I love faux bois and ironwork –equally. This Tuesday’s Find combines the best of both! A cast iron arch with distinct faux bois roots in its oak tree and leaf motif. From Barbara Israel Garden Antiques (see below). Circa 1890, the piece was originally part of a larger fence/gate combination…boy would I love to have see that!
I have long been a fan of Barbara Israel Garden Antiques. They are beautifully edited and mostly very traditional. There is also a line of reproductions at much (but still pricey) lower prices.
