    Besides Micro mosaic Iron Berlin is my passion. It is a pity that many collectors of antique jewelry still know very little about Iron Berlin and the latter also applies to a number of experts in this field. I think that's a shame and that's why I often pay a lot of attention to it.
    On the left a portrait of the painter Rafaël and right Rubens.
    Rafaël (Urbino, April 6, 1483 - Rome, April 6, 1520) was an Italian painter and architect of the High Renaissance. In addition to frescoes, altarpieces and portraits, he has made designs for churches, palazzos and tapestries. His most famous work is the School of Athens in the Vatican. Rafaël (or Raphael) is the name by which he is now known worldwide. His real name was Raffaello Sanzio.
    Peter Paul Rubens (Siegen, [1] June 28, 1577 - Antwerp, May 30, 1640) was a South Netherlandish painter of Flemish Baroque, draftsman, carpet designer and diplomat, working in Antwerp. He was also called Pieter Paul, Pieter Pauwel or Petrus Paulus.
    Throughout his life, Rubens studied the art of Antiquity and the Renaissance and used many mythological motifs in his art. In particular, Titian of the Venetian School was a great example to him. He was in close contact with the Jesuits and devoted his heart and soul to the Counter-Reformation and the glorification of various individuals.

    The medallions come from an old mansion in Bruges, Belgian , where the owner had a large collection of Flemish antiques.
    The medallions are made of cast iron called Iron Berlin of Fer de Berlin and are clearly a couple with the same edge and background.
    Both medallions are in very good condition without cracks or imperfections and are well maintained. The hook for hanging them is also original and is incorporated in the cast iron.

    Diameter 11.8 cm. / 4.65 inches.

      These are so amazing! Until I read your description, and saw the comparison in pic #4, I then realized they're much larger than I initially thought. Great find!

      I am not sure if they are cast iron or spelter which would be better to get that nice sharp detail. Gorgeous pieces all, nice to see a collection of 3 of them !~
