Good Fences #80 - Mystery Fence

 Welcome! - It's time to join Theresa (The Run-a-round Ranch Report) for GOOD FENCES

Today I am sharing photos that I've had for a year now waiting to share for Good Fences. - Don't ask why it's taken me this long to share them.


I was out driving around one day and happened to spot an unusual looking fence so I stopped and took several photos of the fence.  I think it's really unique and different.


As you can see these were taken in the Fall (Nov. of 2014 to be exact)
The Fence had a tall side which you can see in the back of this photo and a shorter side which bordered the garden area in the front.


This is the tall side of the fence. - I love the woven pattern of this fence.
 
 

Another view of the shorter side in the front and where the two sides connected.

A close up of the way the fence is woven.

After I got home and uploaded the photos I showed them to my hubby to see if he could tell me what he thought this fence was made out of.  He knew right away -   Do you?

Here is a clue that I found on the fence.  Let's see if you can guess what it is.

Some of the letters were missing as it's a pretty "aged" fence.  I did a (Google) search with the letters I could make out.


Scroll down if you want to find out more about what this fence is made out of.

Seguin Moreau American Oak is what this emblem actually says.  Have you figured it out yet?  If not you can click on the link and you'll discover what this fence was made out of.


I think it's pretty cool and since we are now a "Wine/Vineyard" area it seems like a very fitting fence for our region.

Hope you have enjoyed my "Mystery" fence today.  Don't forget to stop in and check out all the other Good Fences.  Have a wonderful day.

  1. I didn't guess right away but then it dawned on me that they must be barrels! How clever is that! My first impression was the effect reminded me of a basket which would be cool too!
    Great photos!
    Have a lovely fall!

  3. That is a beautiful fence! I love the craftsmanship! I am guessing it is made out of wine barrel staves. Now I need to go back and check :) Hope you have a good weekend! x Karen

  27. Well, all the way through the post I am thinking basket weave fence ... how very cool. Then I read that it is made of wine barrels ... how very much cooler! What a find and a treat and I am guessing this is a one of a kind. What luck to find such a beauty. Great pictures, Ida ...

  28. I had to look it up. It does result in an amazing fence. I like its style and uniqueness.

  29. That is an interesting fence, Ida. At first I thought it was made of some sort of rubber -- a bit less appealing than wine barrels for sure.

    Thanks for visiting me.

  30. I miss a few days, and boy have you posted some good photos! I love this fence...I did guess what it was after you mentioned it was made of something. Till then, I was just enjoying it.

  31. That is a good one! I hadn't seen one quite like it before--very nice weaving!

  32. that is so very cool!! how very interesting. I thought it might be some kind of barrel. Being Canadian I was thinking more whiskey than wine. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  33. Now that fence is pretty darn cool! Wine barrels, huh? I absolutely love it, and the photos look fabulous with the fall landscape.
