Antique lovers, architecture buffs, and graphic artists will treasure this magnificent collection of decorative French ironwork designs — all of them authentic examples from the celebrated ornamental ironwork of Bordeaux. Over 1,500 handsome black-and-white illustrations depict painstakingly rendered balconies, gates, grilles, stair railings, doorknobs, and doorknockers. Meticulously reproduced with extraordinary clarity and remarkable detail, these elegant images are derived from a rare early twentieth-century volume privately printed in Paris. They incorporate floral and foliate designs, human and animal figures, musical motifs, heraldic crests, mythological figures, geometrics, and much more. A vibrant source of inspiration and royalty-free graphics, this collection offers artists and designers an affordable treasury of material that will bring period flair and decorative dazzle to a wide variety of art and craft projects.
