French Ironwork

I love these pieces of French ironwork in the scroll pattern. This setting sits on my front verandah and it is so delicate yet so strong. The front part of the table has acanthus leaf detailing and a marble top. The chairs are French and date back to the early 40's last century. I am not completely certain of the origins of the table but I believe it to be French as well. The whole setting is so heavy yet they look so fragile. That is what I love about them. Have a wonderful day and more posts to come!
Hugs Frances

I love the pale and delicate colours and ironwork against the dark wood flooring, a fantastic contrast, thanks for sharing. Love from London x
