Medieval Decorative Ironwork in England: English ironwork from 1050-1550

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The ironwork of the medieval period - founded mostly on church doors, chests and tombs in the form of hinges, handles, knockers or grilles - is virtually an unexplored aspect of medieval art, and has proved to be a rich source of evidence for design and craft skills. Jane Geddes traces the development of designs and techniques used from roughly 1050 to 1500. Extensively illustrated with more than 600 photographs and drawings, this book presents for the first time, a comprehensive national record of this artistic medium. The author's discussion of iron-working techniques and the designs' symbolism will be of interest to students of medieval history, architecture and the history of art, while the catalogue provides a rich resource for archivists and church enthusiasts.
