Curved Railings with Gold Leaf Detail-  Waterford, VA

Curved Railings with Gold Leaf Detail- Waterford, VA

The home owners of this beautiful American Colonial home in Waterford, Virginia requested that we create curved wrought iron railings for their brick front entry steps.  They desired a style of railing that would compliment their home and also increase safety of the steps.  The home owners were inspired by one of Antietam Iron Works curved monkeys tail designs.  The design included rope twists on each picket, and a genuine gold leaf detail added to the finials and hand forged balls.

Custom Dog Gate for these Beautiful Goldens

Custom Dog Gate for these Beautiful Goldens

James Gunnell used traditional blacksmithing joinery to make this gate with rivets, collars, and hot punching/drifting; the only way to truly give it the look and feel of handcrafted ancient iron work.  Our clients’ main concern was a safe design for their two golden retrievers.  The gate needed to have a closed design so that they would be unable to catch their collars.  Additionally, a spring latch was chosen to make it easy to get through quickly even when carrying bags of groceries.
