Summary

The peak of architectural ironwork in the 19th Century saw the spread of ornate decorative ironwork across the world. In recent years there has been a significant increase in conservation and restoration projects aiming to protect the artistry of traditional ironwork for future generations. Conservation of Architectural Ironwork is the first book to provide a complete guide to the conservation and maintenance of traditional architectural ironwork.

First introducing the contextual history and key material features of architectural ironwork, the book goes on to guide readers through the management and delivery of conservation projects from start to finish, explaining the very latest in conservation technology. At its peak, architectural ironwork was used on a vast global scale in buildings, bridges, street furniture and ornamental structures. With international case studies and detailed illustrations, this book will be an essential reference for heritage professionals and students of architectural conservation around the world.
