Gallery - The Garden of Surprises, Burghley House
The crown that completes this magnificent entrance measures approximately 2.2m by 1.5m
The elongated pyramid shapes as well as the ellispses and elliptical scrolls in the crown over the entrance gates can be seen in many places around Burghley House.
Our blacksmiths produced this dramatic piece from a huge number of components using an effective combination¬†of classical forging skills and techniques and 21st century metalworking techniques.
The highly geometric nature of the piece meant that it had to be made with an extremely high degree of accuracy.
