What is the name for metal elements reinforcing and protecting wooden elements, for example on coffers, doors, wooden window shutters, even covers of finest ancient books – often decorative?
(my attempts at Google Translate returns only pipe plumbing parts apparently).
For a chest i would call them metal fittings, maybe also metal embellishments if they are purely decorative, but for a door there is also door furniture.
