Jean Tijou, French master blacksmith and designer, was commissioned by William III to create a dozen elaborate iron screens for the gardens at Hampton Court Palace. These flamboyant gilded screens with scrolling acanthus leaves became a magnificent backdrop to the grandeur and opulence of the Privy Garden, the King’s private riverside garden, where they still stand today. Painstakingly hand-drawn and hand-painted, Tijou Gate is a wonderfully ornamented panel design of ironwork and florals in bloom.
