RAILINGS AND GATES
THESE WROUGHT-IRON RAILINGS AND GATES
WERE COMMISSIONED BY THE WELL-KNOWN
EDINBURGH PRINTER WALTER BIGGAR BLAIKIE
FOR HIS HOUSE IN COLINTON
THEY WERE DESIGNED BY PHOEBE ANNA TRAQUAIR
WITH TECHNICAL HELP FROM THE ARCHITECT FRANK MEARS
AND MADE IN 1924 BY THOMAS HADDEN,
THE LEADING DECORATIVE WROUGHT-IRON WORKER IN SCOTLAND.
PHOEBE ANNA TRAQUAIR LIVED IN COLINTON
AND WAS ONE OF THE MOST VERSATILE CONTRIBUTORS TO THE
LATE NINETEENTH CENTURY BRITISH ARTS AND CRAFTS MOVEMENT.
THE ORNAMENTAL RAILINGS ARE A UNIQUE EXAMPLE
OF HER WORK IN WROUGHT IRON. THEY WERE RESTORED BY THE
COLINTON COMMUNITY CONSERVATION TRUST IN 2007,
USING CHRIS TOPP & CO LTD., ARTIST BLACKSMITHS
FROM YORKSHIRE.
