The holdings of non-precious metals comprise objects made of pewter, brass and bronze, and cast and wrought iron. Diversity of materials, and variety of shapes and types of exhibits is characteristic of these collections.

The collection of pewter is of the highest quality among the metal collections; comprising around 3,000 examples, it offers an overview of the stylistic development of pewter from the 14th to the beginning of the 20th centuries. The collection of Gothic pilgrim badges and devotional articles of French origin is the oldest and most unique collection. Czech and German pewter production is presented in the collections by guild tankards and jugs, plates and various drinking sets. In the Art Nouveau period this “poor man’s silver” flourished for the last time.

The collection of non-ferrous metals, i.e. brass and bronze is smaller in number, but contains quality sets of early aquamanila, Gothic dishes, brass mortars, knockers, small sculptures and various types of vessels and candle-holders.

The collection of iron is also diverse. Apart from various mountings, locks, keys and iron bars, there is a unique assembly of iron caskets, the oldest being from the Gothic period with pierced decoration and Baroque examples painted in polychrome colours. Modern blacksmithing from the beginning of the 20th century is represented by the work of professors and students from the Vocational School of Blacksmithing in Hradec Králové.
