Curved Railings with Gold Leaf Detail- Waterford, VA

posted in: Blog, Colonial, Railings

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.
