About this Collection
Hand-wrought metalwork has been a stunning addition to the design and decoration of buildings and gardens throughout history.
Wrought iron is easily worked yet very strong, and can be used for ornamentation as well as a structural element. The gates and railings of late 17th and early 18th century Great Britain are especially renowned for their graceful dignity, created by elegant scrollwork within a framework of panels.
Gold, silver, and brass can be highly polished and exquisitely worked to create beautiful and precious decorative objects.
Whether they are magnificent baroque gateways, gold and silver plate, or exquisite brass religious objects, metalwork can play an important role in completing the overall design of a building.
