74 South Battery Gate Print
Charleston has some true works of art, wrought iron sculptures that guard the city's beautiful gardens and homes of Charleston. The oldest remaining ironwork in the city dates to the Revolutionary War period, although ironwork balconies appeared on Charleston houses as early as 1739. This early iron is wrought iron; iron which has been molded and pounded into shape by a blacksmith using a forge, anvil and hammer. Wrought ironwork of the 18th and 19th centuries features scrolls, fleur-de-lis, leaf and flower patterns, spears and wiggletails. The ironwork, and its fine craftsmanship, are among the greatest of Charleston’s architectural treasures.
