Pattern from Carnbroe Iron Works, Coatbridge.

This wooden pattern is for casting a bracket for a furnace door. Ironworks usually had a foundry for carrying out maintenance.

Merry and Cunningham's Carnbroe Iron Works was established near Coatbridge in 1838, one of the first wave of pig iron works to use JB Neilson's new Hot Blast Process. The works closed in 1921.
