Out of print for a while, this classic reference work on antique ironware is available once again. Antique collectors, iron buffs, and industrial historians will welcome the opportunity to browse through its pages, which contain hundreds of photographs of fascinating items. Architectural hardware, lighting devices, and irons, tools, toys, weathervanes, fences and gates, and kitchen utensils are all presented, with examples taken from rarely-viewed private collections as well as major museums. Concise descriptions of each item pictured augment text that includes a great deal of historical and manufacturing information. You'll find details on the iron works at Saugus, Massachusetts; Batsto, New Jersey; Hopewell, Pennsylvania; and more. There's a discussion of the regional products of the South, Midwest, and Northeast of the United States, along with plenty of information on influences from England and Europe.
