Six iron C-scrolls, paired back to back in a repeating pattern, with a line of scrollwork down the centre. Fastened within a rectangular iron surround.

‘European wrought iron, like other applied arts, shared in the development and growth of the styles prevailing at various periods among the fine arts. Because of the relative intractability of the medium, a wrought-iron object rarely existed as an end in itself, yet it often was made to delight the eye as well as to serve a practical purpose.’ (Clare Vincent, ‘Precious Objects in Iron’ in ‘Ironwork’: The Metropolitan Museum of Art Bulletin, v.22, no.8 (April, 1964), p.272).

Comparator: The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has an iron grill, dated 12th–13th Century and originating from León in Spain (Accession Number: 20.123.1). This grill has a similar design – with a pattern of C-scrolls with smaller scrolls between them, which are attached to each other, and to the supportive iron struts on either side with comparable fastenings.
