Rooms 114a-e: Ironwork

Ironwork, room 114

The longest gallery in the Museum provides a striking setting for the national collection of European decorative wrought and cast iron. It is hugely diverse: from keys and locks to large architectural pieces, from a Byzantine folding seat to a bench by the contemporary American artist blacksmith Albert Paley.

Rooms 114a-e are on Level 3 of the V&A South Kensington.
