The qualities of design that lift work in gold and diamonds to the level of a minor art have often been applied to materials of less intrinsic value, but never more interestingly than when between 1795 and 1850 iron and steel, the typical materials of the Industrial Revolution, were widely used for jewellery. Anne Clifford, in the first book ever devoted to Cut-steel and Berlin Iron jewellery, has written engagingly and informatively about their history, showing how in the latter part of the Napoleonic Wars both types became popular among all classes of European society, and how workers in it achieved original and unique effects. This book, with 4 plates in colour and 36 in monochrome, illustrates a wide range of examples both from the author's own collection and from other private sources, as well as national museums.
