Abstract:

"From benches and balconies to gates, grates, lampposts, and locks, decorative iron- and steel-work have been put to innumerable uses. This generously illustrated book, the first extensive study of the subject, presents a wide array of stunning and complex designs that have been created throughout history to embellish interiors, exteriors, and outdoor spaces." "Exploring topics as diverse as fences and railings, lighting, staircases, jewelry, and the use of color on iron, author Marian Campbell examines objects from throughout Europe and North America and places their design in cultural context. The illustrations include spectacular pieces from the renowned collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, along with examples from public buildings and parks, houses of worship, bridges, castles, and private homes, offering an eclectic history of this little-documented material." "With a useful section on ironworking production and techniques and lists of museum collections, this volume will provide craftsmen, architects, designers, and collectors with an unrivaled opportunity to gain fresh insights into a fascinating subject." --Book Jacket.
