The bronze manufactureIn the 16 th century in Florence, and also in Mugello, there were many noteworthy manufacturers of wrought iron: mostly for churches and aristocratic homes.
They include lanterns, flag posts, candleholders, rings for fastening saddles, door knockers etc.
This art was passed down in Florence and the surrounding area until the first half of the 20 th century.
It has left us exceptionally beautiful works of art: precious gates, splendid lanterns, and Florentine style bedposts.
In the second half of the 20 th century wrought iron was replaced with stainless steel or other metals that were more resistant to the various elements and therefore which needed less care and attention.
Now that numerous ancient homes have been restored to their original beauty, antique objects are very much appreciated and wrought iron is again considered an important part of the furnishings of the home, for example: gates and fences, window fixtures, stairs, tables, flower holders etc.
