Antique Cast Iron Pediment Oak Leaves Acorns. Today I have this Incredible Salvaged Antique Cast Iron Porch Post for Sale.
I Just love old Iron and This one Makes My Heart go Pitter' Patter. And Honestly, Every One that See's it Wants it. The Columns are made from Solid Heavy Cast Iron and are in Great Shape for its Age and its Just Screams with it's Wonderful Warmth and Charm.
Wouldn't You Love it to be Yours? Just think of its Possibilities of What You could do with Them. You could Take 2 and Make a Arbor for Your Flower Garden. Cut them shorter and Make a Really Cool Table from them, and if You have any Left you could use them to Hold up Your Porch.HaHa The Porch Post Stands 8 Feet Tall and is 46.5 inches Wide. And is shown in pictures 1-5. There is alot of Reproduction iron made today and its somewhat easy to notice the Difference between the 2.
Notice how smooth the edges are with no mold Ooze or Flashing. In new production, the seams of the mold are not as tightly locked together.
Therefore, molten iron can ooze between the pieces. This "ooze" is called flashing. When the piece cools, the flashing remains along the seams. On early pieces there is very little flashing. On modern pieces, there is a great deal of it.
To eliminate this excess metal, it is run across a grinder that makes short work of the flashing but also effects the remaining surface of the piece. The grinder leaves marks that are exactly parallel and very coarse. Early pieces were hand-filed with a coarse file and then finished with a very fine file.The lines from hand filing are not all exactly parallel and are barely visible. Please ask for more pictures and ask as many Questions as you need. I just want to make sure you know what you are purchasing. Thank You From Hector da Collector. He's been Architecturally Salvaged.
