This is a handsome late 1800's cast iron gate fence post. It has some rust, but in good shape -Its very old. It would make a great focal point in the vintage garden. Gate post measures approximately 60 inches tall and 7 " wide eachCondition- Some rusting see photos for any area of concern. It is attached to a small concrete base . The post came from very old 1800s Southern Home in Montgomery Alabama. It is of iron and In good condition with obvious rust from age of being outside but the old patina adds a real authentic nostalgic look!. DECORATIVE AND NOSTALGIC This cast iron posts are one part of this Southern Antique collector's possessions , who as the old homes were destroyed back in the 1930's- 1950'd, this collector carefully salvaged the old mantles and stored in for more than half of a century. The Newspaper article said."Maybe the collector didn’t even remember where it was stored or why he had saved it all those years. Maybe just because he liked it , with no use in mind. But the fact remains that, in depths of the Great Depression when the decorative features of razed residences might be had, at least, for carting them away at most, for a song. This collector did a lot of singing! His acquisitions, in any event are incorporated today in some of the old south’s pretentious homes. He owned many old homes here and as they were torn down --he managed to salvage much of the fencing , marble mantles, brass door knobs..etc.. Posts of this type were popular in the late 1800's and beginning of 20 th century to grace the mansions built more than a Century ago. The post is a handsome architectural accent and would look great with a vintage home.I prefer local pickup new orleans 70130 zip .(I can assist with meeting your trucker and loading fence posts- There are various truck freights that pick up-- such as Vintage Transport, or SAI, even Fed Ex Ground. weight per post is about 40 pounds VISIT MY EBAY STORE FOR MORE ANTIQUES AND ADD MY SHOP AS A FAVORITE !
