Decorative ironwork, in shape of acanthus

This piece of decorative ironwork was made by the Edinburgh firm of Thomas Hadden. Dating from the late 19th or early 20th century, it is in the form of an acanthus - a Mediterranean plant rather like a thistle, with lobed, often spiny leaves.

The piece has four holes for screws along the bottom edge.

In the late 19th and early 20th century there was a revival in the use of wrought iron, especially as architectural decoration. Scottish firms like Thomas Hadden's underwent a revival due to increasing interest in Scottish styles and workmanship of wrought iron.
