Edgar Brandt Gate  
Edgar Brandt Gate

Circa 1930

These exquisite art deco gates are a testament to the genius of their designer, Edgar Brandt. His mastery of wrought iron materials, and progressive approach to new welding techniques allowed him to create the delicate, organic forms displayed in these gates. Perhaps one of Brandt’s most noted contributions to ironwork in the twentieth century was his unique use of iron in combination with other metals such as bronze and steel. These gates are accented by brass flowers skillfully welded to their wrought iron vines. Brandt’s prolific work included furnishings, lighting, and fine art pieces. These beautiful gates are a small piece in the history of perhaps the most significant metal artist of the twentieth century.

Measurements: 6’ 10” w x 6’ 4” h
