The Charleston Hardware Company began in 1999 with antique hardware sales and restoration services. Our customers often requested large numbers of matching pieces so we began collecting original antique patterns, and in 2003 we began reproducing. We have four foundries, a lock maker, a glass maker, a ceramics maker, and a plater.


Charleston Hardware takes much pride in manufacturing the most authentic reproductions possible. Antique American pieces are collected and moulds and dies are painstakingly re-created from original American antique pieces. Each piece is made using the same techniques originally used over 125 years ago, and we are the only hardware company casting in the original composition of bronze.


Complete suites of each pattern have been reproduced, allowing hardware throughout the house to match. Window and kitchen hardware, doorknobs, hinges, swing doors and entry door sets are some of the pieces reproduced.


Charleston Hardware assists building professionals and homeowners directly in the design, selection and installation of hardware appropriate for a particular project.  We offer customized hardware to fit existing antique locks and and bespoke reproductions in wrought, cast, and lost wax from antique original piece and schematics. 

Our inventory of antique hardware is constantly changing. If you are trying to locate a matching piece, send us an email with the picture and we will check our stockroom. We have many pieces that are not listed on this website.

Have fun shopping!
