If you live in an older home, you know that matching period-appropriate door knobs, drawer handles, and other important hardware is often a challenge.
Enter the Charleston Hardware Company , which for the past eight years has specialized in antique hardware sales and restoration. Since their customers requested large numbers of matching pieces, they began collecting original antique patterns and in 2003 even began reproducing them, utilizing the same techniques from over 100 years ago.
The company, which is located in Charleston, South Carolina, features four foundries, a lock maker, a glass maker, and a ceramics maker and plater. The company offers antique hardware restoration including stripping paint, cleaning, polishing, replating, repairing, and rekeying locks. They also stock spindles, set screws, and all the parts and pieces needed to restore an old house.
