Twin Gates

Ornate gate, Via Pacinotti, Livorno
Ornate gate, Via Roma, Livorno
These gates may not be identical twins, but I am quite sure that at least their decorations are related closely. The dark one is in Via Antonio Pacinotti and it looks quite pristine. The second gate is in Via Roma and it is probably missing the central part. We have already seen it a few months ago about its hippogriffs.

They are beautiful and a bit similar.

I think you are right. Maybe the fabricator of the gate offered different ways to finish it, and one buyer chose a head and the other chose a shell.

Products of the same foundry, maybe?

I wonder if you can plagiarize a gate? :) I like both of them but one does appear to be a template for the other!

Very similar! The same influences must be at work here!

Gates to make the imagination take wing!

They are both beautiful, and for me up here in Norway, it is not common to see beautiful gates like this. Well at the Royal castle in Oslo, but not here.
