Wrought iron, London, ca.1867, by T. Winstanley

Window grating, wrought iron, rectangular with scrolled foliage in a Gothic revival style.

This is a reinterpretation rather than a revival of the Gothic style, of the kind developed by designers like Owen Jones in the 1860s. Winstanley was a professional metalworker: this is one of a group of hammered metal pieces to his own design that he entered in the Society of Arts' competition for Art-Workmen in 1868, winning a prize of £3.
