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.
Our hinges are hand forged. We have them made for us by artisan blacksmiths. The smiths we use have been chosen by us because of the quality of their work and also for the skill and passion they have for wrought iron. The hinges are produced in a very ancient way. they are hand forged on the anvil. The anvil is known to have been used for thousands of years. The finished product will show these forging marks. Once the hinges are complete and before they are assembled they are hand cleaned and hand polished.
It is only now that the final stage of treating with beeswax is undertaken. Each hinge is dipped in natural beeswax. The beeswax helps to protect the hinge from excessive rusting. The wax will also give the hinge a uniform colour. The colour will be from mainly black to some areas of golden brown
