Our black Vintage door bolt is a wrought iron door bolt. All are individually hand forged, and so they are similar but not identical. Each cottage 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.
We are fortunate in finding a small blacksmiths shop to make these bolts for us. The blacksmiths that make these are highly skilled artisans. As important as their skills are, Their passion for making quality ironmongery is equally important to us. All of these bolts are hand forged on the anvil. When complete the bolts are hand cleaned and hand polished. The bolts are now ready to be dressed. To dress the bolt we use natural beeswax.
Beeswax is a very old and traditional method of dressing wrought iron. The wax soaks into the tiny holes on the surface of the iron and is able to form a skin over its surface. This will now protect the iron from excessive rusting. The wax also serves a second purpose. The second purpose is to help even the colour of the bolt out. The main colour of the bolt will now be black but you might notice some areas of golden brown.
Fixing screws will be included in with your order.
