Very interesting Salesman Sample fence gate made with brass tubing and fittings. It was designed to be elevated to clear obstructions in its path. Have not found a patent. There is a metal plate on the base that says "Prairie States Mfg. Co., Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Can anyone share information about the Company? I like it so much that I had a postage stamp made of it.
Mystery Solved February 18, 2014. Found patent. Model appears to have modification of means to elevate gate.
