Hi GyurIca,they are incredibly alike, but it isn´t the same gate. Look at the curlicues on the bottom of the gate, and the door in the back. -- Maybe they are done by the same artist? Both are very beautiful! Can you find out? I would love that!

Hi eva lewitus!

Yes, my fault, you are right. I think this iron wrought gate is a work of Jungfer Gyula (1841-1908) He is considered one of the most important masters in decorative art in the turn-of-the-century Hungary. He had made more then 200 iron wrought gate in Budapest. I try to find out, but not sure will manage. I may need some help.

Best regards,

Thank you so much, GyurIca, I looked up Jungfer Gyula with google, and found many of his wonderful creations, not only wrought iron gates. But, no I didn´t see your, nor my gate among his extraordinary work.
Imagine making a collection of all of his gates???
