De una memoria de calidades:
"Una chimenea de hierro visto"

Actually I need the translation in Dutch but no one seems to know. I was hoping that I could find the Dutch through the English translation - there are more of you than your Dutch colleagues! All ideas are welcome...

exposed-iron chimney
Explanation:
Just an idea - it could also perhaps be a fireplace - not the actual chimney itself. More context would be needed to be sure.

After 1855 and still more after 1870, building regulations in London actively discouraged the use of exposed-iron construction. Fire hazards, and the dangers of oxidisation and fragmentation, inhibited easy acceptance of the new material. By the 1870s not only had the search for an iron architecture been abandoned, a series of spectacular failures -- at the Surrey Music Hall, for example - had gone some way towards discrediting iron construction altogether. Steel was by then the material of the future. G. E. Street dismissed the search for a new, metallic architecture as "a wild goose chase." [124]
