Description: Mid 19'th century Tunisian wrought iron window grill - a form commonly referred to as a 'cage' - fashioned without welds - complete with original Mediterranean pine frame and shutters, which could be glazed if desired. The traditional color is some shade of blue to ward off evil spirits. This particular shape, freely translated from French, is known as a "Pregnant Lady" and is supposed to confer fertility on the house. Makes a wonderful piece for the garden wall, verandah or in-house wall, with or without the pine frame, with or without plants inside it.
