Fences of Yesteryear

Today is Thursday, and the day that I link up with other blogs to show fences in their areas. It is no secret that I will stop in my tracks when I see an old home, but I also love to see their antique fences.
This stone and iron fence is fairly new, but I see that they have used an old section of  nineteenth century fencing. This style of iron fence with it's fancy post or finial (?) seems to have been common all over the southern U.S. I have tried to research online, to see what company manufactured these, but have yet to find an answer.
