LOL -- so far it never occured to me to link "Chinese Chippendale" with Chip 'n Dale... likely for association patterns in Germany are disppersed by renaming the two disney hamsters A-Hoernchen and B-Hoernchen and regarding the type of deck reeling pattern correctly as "Viktorianische Chinoiserie Ballustrade", a name as long as the whole fence....

I'm laughing now, too! This fence pattern came from a book of Early American fence patterns. I like what it does in the light. I think the original may have been one word, as you have written it. Although the Disney characters are in my childhood, as well, now days people think of the sexy male dancers with that name.

It sounds as though you are a fan of Chinese architecture, too. Check out the railing in my album, Creeksong's Projects, Page 3, last photo.

"Chinese Chippendale"was actualy a britsh furniture style with asian inspiration that cought on in america and got there simplified a bit to match Art Deco. The lattice work became a classic as it fits almost anything else. But it was indeed started by the same company as the famous stiff looking chairs, just a tad later.

Thanks for the lesson, Sonja! Thought I'm 72, my education never stops. :-0)

The way the pattern catches the light kind of gives it a 3-D quality....

This is a nice one for getting around the modern building codes, in many but not all states, requiring the gaps to be too small for brats to fall through..... Rather than have straight up-and-down things that make a deck look part jail cell ;) We ran into that stupid code when having to replace part of our HUGE deck at our Pennsylvania vacation property.... Thankfully, we were able to convince the guy that the deck is part of the pre-code construction of the rest of the house and the rest of the decks, so he put in railing that was a close match to the originals and, after he completed his work and left, we modified it to be an exact match... Sure, the gap was big enough for an adult to fit through, but, we figured if someone's kid is dumb enough to work their way past the safety measure looking to fall 20ft. to the gravel driveway below, they might not be long for this life anyway.... hehehe.... As one comedian put it, "if your kid is too dumb to not hang out the open window of a moving car, they might just be too dumb to live and the rest of us shouldn't have to suffer car windows that don't open all the way just to protect the idiots of the world... "

We have the same codes, Fizgig. A four inch ball must not fit through any opening, and the beautiful pattern, inspired by Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, mentioned in my post above had to be modified to fit this rule. None the less, I was satisfied with its final configuration.
