For centuries, wrought iron was worked with care and craft into objects as diverse as shop signs, balcony railings, and dog collars. This handsome volume brings together thirty-six unique pieces of wrought iron from the celebrated collection of the Mus e Le Secq des Tournelles in Rouen, France, and combines stunning photography with fresh and engaging scholarship. Salvaged by the founders of the Mus e Le Secq during a period when wrought iron was being rapidly discarded and replaced with modern materials, these objects tell stories of preindustrial times and highlight the importance of iron in our shared past. An essay by Kathleen M. Morris offers a contemporary perspective on these extraordinary works of art, while current and former curators of the Mus e Le Secq provide fascinating insights into the magnificent holdings of the museum's renowned collection.
