Metal works part1

Still photos from Toruń. Actually there are so many beautiful metal works it is hard not to take at least one photo of each of them.;) Hope you will find them as pretty as they were for me.:)

Oh this is sooooo very beuatiful! What a craftmanship there used to be. They don't do this anymore. In the "old days" one simply could see that the craftman loved their work. I wish I could live in such a house.....well keep on dreaming :) thank you so much for letting us enjoy seeing the pictures and a little bit of your country.

Wow, Ewa, those are Beautiful! I agree with Janice.... I had no idea that your country had a tradition of fancy ironwork! The details are gorgeous, and your photos are very beautiful!

Ewa, these pictures really fascinate me, espacially those dragons ones :). I have always love the intricate designs of metal railings so much so that I wanted to incorporate them in my Indian houses. I thought they were not prevalent in India but when I was in Jaipur, I saw carved railings in the Neenramam Palace :):).

I would have spent a lot of time staring at these from the roads as well. My sister told me that there are high incidents of road deaths for architects because they were often distracted by buildings and its details. It was rumoured that that was what happened when Gaudi was run over by the tram which killed him 3 days later. :) May it be a metal railing, you think?

The Old Maid said...

Happy you like it Jollie! Thank you!:)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you, Janny! Happy you like it! Actually most of this pretty details on the walls is quite new. The door on the last photo is the entrance of the art iron-smith.:)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you, Betsy! Happy you like them.:D The truth is I also had no idea there are so many examples of ironworks in Toruń. But I guess you could find nice pieces in every city.;)

The Old Maid said...

Hmmm Sans I haven't heard of such accidents here but still a metal is a metal so who knows?;)
That would be great to see metal railings inside or outside of your beautiful miniatures! Hope you will decide to have one or two pieces there.Fingers crossed.:)

The Old Maid said...

Would it be a surprise if I tell you I was thinking of you taking these photos Catherine?:D I am very happy you like them! Still there is part 2 of them to come soon;D
