Now let's get to iron carving, the crowing event of decorating ironworks.

Please cf. my threads:

The two bottom attachments, as well as all attachments to the following posts, illustrate fine iron-carved North Italian barrels from former matchlock arquebuses, ca. 1520-40, all from items sold by the auction house of San Giorgio, Genova, unless stated otherwise.


Best,
Michael
