Smithy Shop creates authentic
colonial hardware with unsurpassed beauty.
Handcrafted and hand forged by our blacksmiths under
the tutelage of New England Master Blacksmith Franklin
Horsley. Our Colonial
Handles and Hinges have
delicate details and gentle curves which reflect the
high degree of skill accomplished by the Smithy. These
qualities are particularly true of period hardware in
the more sophisticated areas of America in the seventeenth and eighteenth
centuries when iron was brought from
England at great cost. Thus, the thin, fine features
of early American hardware.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art fittingly displayed Franklin's colonial
hardware. The Wadsworth House of Harvard University
and the Franklin Pierce Presidential Home, as well as,
many historic sites are dressed with his period hardware.
We are available for consultation to find the proper hardware
for your period home. Just call or email us and we would
be happy to help.
We invite you to bring timeless artistry and unlimited
value to your Period Home with our distinctive
line of traditional hardware.
