Wrought Iron hinges


William Burges


Wrought iron

Lord Bute's Sitting Room, Cardiff Castle


The silvered and foliated hinges here match the ones on the window shutters and are typical of Burges's more ornamental metalwork designs (contrast the shutters on the castle's outer walls. Burges had a particular interest in metalwork, "designing for Lord Bute an amazing range of silver plates, vessels and cutlery, rich in ornamental detail, which were produced by the most skilled silversmiths of the day" (Crowley 85).
