This section offers decorative brass hardware that is not a part of a pattern. Doorknobs, rosettes, and back plates are offered separately. When pairing these together check that the diameter of the doorknob ferrule will fit into the plate or rosette. These pieces were originally made by different manufacturers and will vary in size. We have paired various pieces as guides.

Charleston Hardware Co. Bronze Neoclassical Pattern Hardware

The neoclassical style French Shell pattern dates to around 1890. The back plates feature a stylized shell at the top and French scroll design. We have reproduced this pattern by lost wax investment casting. Charleston Hardware is one of the few reproduction hardware manufacturers offering this casting technique. The results are museum quality pieces. 

Our three Art Deco designs first appeared on the American scene in the 1920’s. Noteworthy is the lack of Victorian ornamentation and the appearance of strong architectural lines. 

Glass knobs were often substituted for brass doorknobs.

The whimsical aesthetic of our art nouveau Avalon suite is the combination of two antique patterns: Olympia and Alby.

During the industrial revolution, wrought (pressed) hardware was introduced. Made by machine, this hardware required less material and labor; therefore, it was less expensive than hardware previously available. At the end of the Victorian era more patterns were made with simple lines and very little ornamentation.
