For three quarters a century, authenticity and function have been our mission in producing the highest quality forged hardware and accessories. Founded in 1937, a third generation family-owned business is today the finest and largest manufacturer and distributor of forged iron builders hardware in the United States. The majority of our products are made in the U.S.A. at our manufacturing facility in Mansfield, Massachusetts. We are fortunate to benefit from many longtime, skilled employees, 20, 30 even 40 years, are not uncommon and we take pride in hiring locally. We offer a lifetime replacement warranty on all of our products.

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.
All of the hardware and utensils are hand forged and hand finished. Careful forging combined with hand filing, fitting, and finishing are necessary to reproduce the details, finish, and feel of early wrought hardware.
Notting Hill Decorative Hardware creates high-end hardware for cabinets and furniture. Our artisan line of hardware is handcrafted at a fine arts foundry to produce a distinctive line of knobs, pulls, back plates and appliance pulls. From the beginning in 1996, we embraced our motto, “The Beauty Is In The Details.” Our unique designs are cast with intricate relief and hand-finished to highlight the artful motifs. Select pieces are embellished with enamel, hand-painting, crystals, semi-precious stones and even – pearls. Our products are cast of solid fine pewter or solid bronze and then plated with multiple finish options.
