Espaliered tree form hand wrought iron trellises. 
The surface is fabulous, installed outside on a garden wall for the last 80 years 
they have that wonderful weathered glassy patina that you only find on old
hand hammered coal forged ironwork. Two of the three are presently mounted on removable stands and are 
freestanding, we have an additional stand for the third one if you so desire or reinstall on  a wall. 
The artist who designed and sculpted these works was certainly a master of the medium.

Commissioned in the 1920's by Josephine Earle for her estate "Gypsy Trail " in Kent NY. Josephine was a 
successful screen actress and had performed in a movie of  the same name in 1915. 
They were installed outside there until the late 80's when a neighbor bought them from her daughter. 
We are the third owners. Supposedly there is similar set installed at the DuPont mansion in Delaware.
These pictures are from the Vermont Antique Dealers Show which we did recently.
