Antique Wrought Iron Driveway Gates

A few years back, we imported a treasure trove of Antique Wrought Iron from Egypt... over 200 tons in all...
We believe it came mainly from Cairo, where there was a French Quarter that was recently renovated.
The iron is very high quality - nearly 100-200 years old and it will surely last at least another 100 years.
Our skilled craftsman continue to create beautiful items from this imported iron: console tables, dining tables, decorative wall accents, garden gates... just to mention a few...
Here's one example of a 'before' & 'after'...
these panels of rusted iron (with beautiful patina!)

turned into this stunning Driveway Gate
fabricated here @ Black Dog Salvage

We still have tons of iron to explore in our yard!

Vintage Leather Chair

sorry, this one SOLD fast!

Good News! Ebay has finally stopped pulling our listings and we're slowing catching up & rebuilding our store... thanks to an update in Ebay's policies, our listings were pulled because we did not include shipping rates. I feel for the folks who lost thousands of listings... guess we were lucky to just lose 200... anyhoo... because Ebay does not offer a bulk listing tool to include freight shipping, we're updating each listing one at a time... so if there's something you saw in our Ebay Store, that's no longer there -please give us a call or drop us an email - we'll check to see if it's still here.
Better News! We have some great new finds to share... my favorite is shown above... Vintage Leather Chair from our vendor, The Vintage Life. Pictures don't do this one justice... I see this in a library room with a cool beverage & good book!
More to come...
