Rare Art Nouveau Bronze Staircase Railing

Ref: AR5490
A very heavy solid bronze or brass stair railing in the manner of Victor Horta (Belgian, 1861-1947). See: Solvay Hotel (Brussels, 1895-1900). We have removed it from a demolition of a 1970 house constructed with antique salvage, so its origin is unknown. Note the superb craftsmanship and design with flowing whiplash and curves only found in the finest art nouveau architecture. We have retained the solid oak stairway to show how it was attached, and what the angle was when there are two panels. It includes one angled and one straight panel for the landing. A true once in a lifetime find.
