The roots of Berlin iron jewellery in Berlin can be traced back to the establishment of the Royal Berlin Foundry in 1804. This type of jewelry became popular due to its symbolic relationship with a feeling of patriotism and loyalism as the Prussian Royal family urged its wealthy citizens to give their gold for the war.
Combining history and sentiment is this very rare glorious example of Berlin iron ring.
The technique consisted in firstly carving or moulding shapes in wax, pressing these into fine sand and filling the impressions with molten iron. These pieces were left alone to cool down, then finished by hand and black lacquer was applied.
Many of the iron jewels imitated the popular and classical styles of the time, as the theme of this ring: and engraved bird bringing a message …of love, solidarity or perhaps just good news.
The shank of the rare ring is a beautiful floral motif with daysies and roses hiding may be another message.
The ring is in quite good condition considering that most of Berlin Iron jewelry is in museums or left to perish in the rust. It shows the original black laquer on the shank and little wear on the engraved plaque.
Meaningfully crafted during Georgian era.
