Hand forged iron in the early American style. Each piece of our forged iron is handmade by one of our seven smiths using a hammer, an anvil, and a coal fire. The beautiful scaled black finish comes from heat and linseed oil-that's it. Simple and pure. Unlike some companies, our iron is forged in an authentic manner. The edges of each piece are beveled out with a hammer, but the surfaces are not hammered for the sake of hammering. Colonial ironwork was meant to be elegant, not distressed.
If left outdoors and untreated our iron will rust. Please see our care and maintenence instructions under the installation tips menu at the bottom of the page.
Finish: You’ve striven to get your wood to glow. The brasses need to accentuate that effort. A beautiful finish is the final step.
