Decorative objects made in iron at the Royal Prussian Iron Foundry in Berlin from c.1800 until c.1840. Items included jewellery and small statuary as well as accessories for sewing, writing, and smoking. Prussian artists, such as Schinkel, provided designs in both the Neoclassical and the Neo-Gothic (see Gothic Revival) styles. Berlin ironwork was much copied in the 1930s.
