Elaborate and Beautiful Iron Fence
The lyre and spear-point patterns make this a work of art.
Several years ago I came across this elaborate iron fence surrounding an Italianate-style house in Wiscassett, Maine. I was struck by the beauty and intricate detailing of the fence. The repeating lyre and spear-point patterns are lovely and illustrate a high level of craftsmanship. It’s a reminder of the artistry of past designers and builders that we do well to honor and strive to live up to today.
