Shell Shutter Dogs

SKU: 4128.US693
  • Description

    Our plate mounted shell shutter dogs are made of cast iron.  They were cast from 1850's antique originals.  We recently found the original design listed in a Reading Hardware Catalog picture!  


    Shutter dogs are also known as shutter stays, or shutter hold backs. Our lag mounted shutter dogs are hand forged by our blacksmiths, galvanized and black powder coated. They are made to last generations.


    The rotating part has a hand hammered rivet that attaches it to a post. We are the only company that reproduces this detail! You will not find a more accurate reproduction.

    Shutter dogs are both decorative and functional. They are gravity weighted to keep them in position. One end is heavier than the other, and in the vertical position the top of the dog holds the shutter open.
