Unique, Hand-Hammered Products.
Our products have the craftsmanship of our ancestors which shows in the small irregularities and inconsistencies of our hand-hammered products, and hand painted patina finishes, which is a small testament that these items are not stamped out of an assembly line, as well as, the numerous options we offer for each individual product.
Old West Iron's iron fireplace mantle straps have the option to be structural or decorative. They can be paired with any of our clavos for unique looks. This item can also be used as a beam strap to hide an ugly seam, or to hang a plant, light, or sign.
Our decorative iron door knockers / ring pulls are a mixture of historical replicas and designs inspired by various historical buildings across Europe. These vintage style door knockers can also be used as towel rings and cabinet pulls.
Our forte is our hand chosen line of designs in historical wrought iron reproductions with an emphasis on the original style iron hardware/fasteners, such as, hand-hammered square head lag screws/bolts and hammered head carriage bolts. We have created an expansive collection of door, furniture, cabinet, and trunk hardware in all of our unique design options from the most rustic to the most primitive forged iron, not excluding our dramatic ornate iron.
These clavos are fabricated with a thin nail for the easiest application.
The commonly misused term "wrought iron" is no longer produced on a commercial scale. True wrought iron is a semi-fused mass of smelted iron created by heating ore in a forge with charcoal, which both expels most of the slag and welds the iron into a solid mass. In the 1860's wrought iron was replaced by mild steel since it was less expensive and more readily available. Most of today's products described as "wrought iron" are actually mild steel. The term "wrought" was actually used to describe the process used to create the iron, the word wrought itself meaning worked in Middle English. We do offer a hand applied finish that replicated the look of the old wrought iron.
