"Dinanderie was the name used during the Middle Ages to denote the various articles required for ecclesiastical or domestic use made of copper or of its alloys, brass and bronze, with which the name of Dinant on the Meuse was so intimately associated; and as we have no word in modern English which would in the same way embrace all branches of this important artwork, we have adopted it as the most convenient for our purpose."
