Wall protection, Belfast
Wall protection, Belfast
Some Victorian Belfast buildings, with gated yards, have fixtures similar (but of a different shape) to this.

Corner, wall and gate protection,Northern Ireland

Usually metal attachments, often conical or spherical, dating mainly from the era of the horse cart and the early motor lorry. Many cast by local foundries.
