Prototype Leaf for an Edgar Brandt Gate Restoration
This is a prototype for a restoration project in Cleveland, Ohio. The original pieces were stamped. This piece was formed by hand using the French repoussé process. It is made of 18 gauge, and is 16″w x 11-1/2″ h. Four pieces of this form are needed. 510 various pieces, all made by hand using the same process, are needed for the entire restoration.
There are two sets of identical gates, made by French master smith, Edgar Brandt.
