Copied from hardware found on antique trunks, these authentic pieces are beautifully fabricated from 1/16th" thick brass and iron. These are very high quality reproductions, suitable for antique boxes and the finest campaign style furniture.
Ohioans Darryl, Gary and Brian work together on some of our specialty hardware. A plasma cutter gives them the capability to make just about any shape, so if you have a special design you would like us to make, just contact Orion for help.
The iron finish is as shown, black and molted, and intended to look centuries old. Our brass trunk hardware is available in 4 finishes: antique, dark antique, semi-bright and bright. In these photos we are showing bright and antique.
Sustainability. We choose our packing materials with the planet in mind. We use popcorn and newspaper. The popcorn, made from cornstarch, is a harmless alternative to Styrofoam. It is completely biodegradable and dissolves in water. The newspaper we use represents the ultimate recycling. Our employees bring it in and we reuse it!
Another of our blacksmiths shall remain nameless, as she is somewhat camera shy. She and her family live in a beautiful part of rural Kentucky on an old farm.
Horton Brasses produces more than 1,000 different pieces of authentic reproduction furniture and cabinet hardware at our factory in Connecticut. We use brass, iron, and various hardwoods to make knobs, drawer pulls, hinges, shelf pegs, bed bolts, casters, hooks and even clock finials!
