I bought these genuine “cast iron”Victorian error legs from a “velosopede lathe” on trademe because of thier beautiful form. it wasnt long before a client turned up with a piece of timber looking for legs to be fitted to make a bespoke bar leaner style table for thier home.
The piece of timber was camphor wood bought in Australia, we finished it in silky matt urethane had the cast iron sand blasted and powder coated black then fitted it up. We found these beautiful “new’ bar stools to complement the table and hey presto another satisfied customer.
We have photographed the legs and intend to reproduce the same or a similiar cast leg possibly in brass, bronze or painted aluminium.
