The skills of the blacksmiths from the Baroque era are legendary. They applied their art to churches, to the stairways and railings of mansions, to trade signs and a myriad of other ornamental and practical creations.

Contrasted and offset by the austere metal rings used to cradle our historical globe, they create a focal point in a well thought out and planned home décor. Handwrought iron stand.
