Elisabeth Schmuttermeier and Derek E.Ostergard, editors

The catalogue explores the cast-iron industry from a socio-economic and political perspective and provides a comprehensive examination of cast-iron work from 1800-1850. The flourishing of the cast iron industry during the first half of the 19th century under the aegis of the Prussian government, and the manner in which the industry became a major contributor to that nation’s economic development is examined in the catalogue. The history of the cast-iron industry is traced as well, from the manufacture of a diverse array of domestic objects to the construction of major engineering and architectural innovations.
