Our wrought iron door bolts are all individually hand forged, and so they are similar but not identical. Each piece is hand finished and given a beeswax coating. All our hand-forged products are carefully aged. Once installed these products will look old and authentic.
This traditional black door bolt has been hand forged. We have sourced a team of artisan blacksmiths to make these old bolts for us in a black cottage style. The bolts are hand forged on the anvil in the traditional manner. Our chosen blacksmiths are highly trained artisans who have a passion for their work and the ability to produce quality items. As the bolts are hand made they will be similar but will not be identical. Forging marks will be seen on the bolts.
The traditional black door bolt is hand finished. Once the bolt has been compleated it is hand cleaned and polished, the bolt is now treated with beeswax. The beeswax is a very bold and traditional way of treating wrought iron. The wax forms a moisture barrier on the bolt that helps to prevent excessive rusting.
A full set of fixing screws will be included with your order.
