Our wrought iron products are all hand forged. So though similar will not be identical. Each piece is hand finished and given a beeswax coating. All our hand-forged products are carefully aged for an authentic look.
Making our handles
Our handles are made for us by artisan blacksmiths. We have been able to find a small blacksmith shop to do this for us. The blacksmiths that make these handles are highly skilled in their craft. They are also passionate about the work that they produce. You will be able to see this in the quality of the finished product. These handles are made in probably the oldest form of forging wrought iron there is. These handles are hand forged on the anvil.
Once these handles have been forged they now need to be dressed. To dress the handles they are placed into natural beeswax. The beeswax is important as it has two main functions. The first function is that the beeswax will seep into the small holes on the surface of the wrought iron. This enables the wax to form a bonding coat over the entire surface. This coat will protect the iron from the air and therefore prevent excessive rust. The wax will also give the handle a more even colour.
Fixing screws will be provided with your order. These screws will be old cottage type screws with a black domed head.
