Forgive me if this info has already been posed somewhere here on Dave's Garden, but today I found 2 suppliers of the old-fashioned Loop Fencing that was popular back in the 1940's - give or take. They both have pictures on their websites. ...My Granny Murphy had this fence and the matching gate, which I fear has to be custom made, but it brings back such great memories of being at her home in Kentucky. ...Maybe some of you have been looking for it too, so here are your links! Enjoy!

Glenda: That's amazing that you found that fencing. I didn't even know it was still available. There are a lot of old homes around where I live that have it from years ago and it still looks good. Weathered, but still nice. Not bad pricing, either !
I used to live in a house that was built in 1927 there was fencing like that all round the property ( not really big 40x120) The big pain in the neck was the posts what were beautiful with pretty caps, were set in concrete . I love the fence and when its rusty its even better.
Never had a gate but have seen them too.
pirl--do you have any local welding shops? We have one here that makes gates, trellises, and all sorts of other ornamental things. Maybe you have one locally that could come up with a trellis that would look perfect with that gate.
We do have a welding place but they're for duty, not for beauty. We also have far too many other projects in the works right now like a new garden gate, a new replacement obelisk, two vanity tops and just had the kitchen steps done so we'll keep trying to find the ideal spot for it and then tackle the job.
