Cast Iron Spindles

Throughout history, cast iron has held a prominent role in the decoration of buildings, growing from purely functional to decorative. Dating back centuries, cast iron has been an integral part of architectural design, from barriers to statements of style such as fireplaces and bathtubs.

Examples can be found in cathedrals and churches enhanced with Gothic iron, where functionality merged with artistic expression. These structures often have cast iron gates and railings, with cast iron balusters standing as lasting features of the Gothic era’s architectural landscape.

The Victorian Era further improved the prominence of cast iron, with its use going beyond religious settings to royal and aristocratic properties. Here, iron not only offered practical purposes but also suggested status and sophistication, enhancing the grandness of stately homes and gardens.

Over time, advancements in production techniques have allowed for greater intricacy and diversity in iron balustrade design, ensuring that this timeless element continues to enrich the aesthetic appeal of properties across generations. Today, the legacy of iron railings continues, loved for its timeless elegance and historical significance.
