Hardware produced in the colonies was often made of iron. The British did not allow brass to be shipped to the Colonies, requiring instead that we purchase all finished goods from English makers. Making brass hardware in America was strictly forbidden. Itinerant blacksmiths forged iron hardware in portable coal forges with a hammer and anvil. Our 7 smiths use exactly the same methods and copy original American patterns. Each piece is an original work of art and breathtakingly beautiful. We can make strap hinges for your barn or graceful pulls for your fine cabinetry. We stock hundreds of authentic handmade pieces and try to have ample stock for most projects. Do you have an idea you would like translated into iron? We are eager to make your idea reality, custom work is always welcomed.
