Description
 
This catalogue of the extensive collection at Winterthur Museum fills an oft-neglected niche in the field of decorative arts -- that of the history and use of iron in the everyday life of 17th-, 18th-, and 19th-cent. Americans. With essays and entries on approximately 275 cast, wrought, and sheet iron objects for every conceivable household function, Fennimore not only addresses the specifics of maker, date, place of origin, but also presents thematic and interpretive commentary dealing with economics, craft and mfg. techniques, and the marketplace. He also tells the story of skill and artistry, illuminating the grace and beauty inherent in everyday iron objects. The intro. documents the formation of the collection by museum founder Henry Francis du Pont. Photos.
