Holy Hardware Charleston Hardware Co 🤩 🤩 🤩

These Neoclassical Style French Shell Pattern hardware date back to the 1890's. The back plates feature a stylized shell at the top and a gorgeous French scroll design. Charleston Hardware Company has reproduced this pattern by using “lost wax investment casting”. This process is far more time consuming and expensive than traditional sand casting. It's used to capture only the finest details, to give museum quality results. Charleston Hardware Co. is one of the few reproduction hardware manufacturers that still offers this casting technique.

📸&📕 Charleston Hardware Company
I've had my eye on a pair of Charleston Hardware Co. door k**bs for the last two or three years. Once I moved into my new place and began renovations I was quick to snap them up. Ordering the equipment was a breeze and my door k**bs arrived surprisingly quick from Charleston. I absolutely love how they look on my French Doors leading into my home office. I would definitely buy from this local company again.
If you have a historic home, you may be looking for hard-to-find replacement hardware pieces. Charleston Hardware Co. offers antique and fine hardware reproductions from doork**bs to cupboard latches. They also offer restoration and custom reproductions of your own hardware.

Don't have a historic home? These pieces are a great way to add a personalized touch to your house.
Just trying to verify the validity of this.
"🖤 I can’t get over the smooth, matte top, that still reflects the light so beautifully off of it!! 😍🖤 It’s painted in Lamp Black Milk Paint from General Finishes and we added new Hepplewhite pulls from Charleston Hardware Co . I absolutely love the look and it looks so amazing in my clients home; the perfect size and style!! Yay! 🖤" - Soleil Furnishings

If this isn’t proof that even the most deteriorated historic buildings can be brought back, we don’t know what it is! Charleston Hardware Co shared a pair of striking before and after photos showing the historic Admiral’s House, also known as Quarters A, in Charleston in a state of disrepair and fully restored. The house was built in 1905 to house Admirals in the Navy. It’s the second oldest building on the Navy Shipyard and one of the grandest.
Hardware is gorgeous! Thank you.

Charleston Hardware Co. offers antique and fine hardware reproductions. We also offer restoration and custom reproductions of your hardware. The Charleston Hardware Company began in 1999 with antique hardware sales and restoration.

Our customers often requested large numbers of matching pieces so we began collecting original antique patterns and in 2003 we began reproducing them utilizing the same techniques from over 100 years ago. We analyzed the metal content of the originals and produce our hardware in matching materials of hand wrought iron and cast brass, bronze, and iron. We have four foundries, a lock maker, a glass

Operating as usual

The meaning of the Claddagh Ring - a timeless symbol of love, loyalty, and friendship.

This antique door knocker has been restored to it’s original brass beauty.

The three distinctive symbols each have their own meaning that come together to create the ultimate message of love.

The heart is the central feature of the ring, and it represents love. The intricate crown, sat atop the heart, is traditionally a symbol of royalty. However, in the case of the Claddagh Ring, it represents loyalty.

Finally, the ring, which is finished with two cupped hands gently holding the heart and the crown, represents friendship.

Happy Valentine’s Day!💗✨

A step into our archives is a step into the past. This photograph of the Emanuel A.M.E. Church on Calhoun Street was captured c. 1940s by Benjamin Frazier. An iconic architectural structure along the Charleston skyline, the Emanuel A.M.E Church has also become a historic location where speeches were made, legacies are remembered, and unthinkably where tragedy has occurred.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Barely 20 years after this photograph was captured, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., addressed a group of approximately 3,000 from the Emanuel A.M.E Church in 1962. “I come here not as an outsider but as an insider with real associations and connections in the state of South Carolina and in Charleston," King said. “Charleston residents were urged to register and vote by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and other top aids in the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC)” a local paper reported.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today we honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; his values, his words, and the legacy of his work that continue today. For more information on Dr. King and how to get involved, visit The King Center

Happy New Year! ✨🍾 Check out one of our favorite rooms from 2021 featuring our knob set!

REPOST via @rosyrilli “More so than just decorating, I wanted to create a cozy, homey atmosphere in the children’s bedroom. I grabbed my ✂️ and brought a little cheer to the mantel using fresh greens, pinecones and some dried flower’s from this past year’s summer garden. The dried grapefruit and orange slices from the other day were strung onto cotton string with a little leftover velvet ribbon tied for good measure and two of my beeswax candles set atop the mantel 🍊 🕯✨ I may yet still give some of those branches a trim and perhaps even add in some dried eucalyptus too 🌿 Next year, the addition of a wide velvet ribbon and some small knit stockings would be lovely. I considered adding fairy lights for some extra twinkle but between the window candle lights and the colored strings dotting this room already, a nice natural warm glow was enough.”

Our 12 Days of Christmas got a little sidetracked but we just HAD to post our twelfth day! On the 12th Day of Christmas we present to you 12 Oriental Drum Knobs! ✨

Branford Lock Works first produced this popular Eastlake pattern in 1884. Recurring design components include an open fan, the rising sun and bamboo. We collected original antique pieces and remade the moulds. Each piece is cast one at a time. Finishing is done by hand just as it was over a century ago. The relief has japanning to bring out the details. Un-lacquered bronze, this series will acquire a soft statuary patina with time. Hand antiquing is offered to make the hardware look old at the time of installation.

On the 6th day of Christmas, Charleston Hardware Co. gave to me... 6 Geese A Layin' (white ceramic knobs)! 🦆😉

Ceramic knobs are a gorgeous choice for subtle decor in kitchens, bathrooms and even bedrooms. The smooth surface looks gorgeous against painted cabinets and drawers. With a variety of different colors to choose from, these knobs are a great addition to help pull together the colors and aesthetics of the room. One of our featured ceramic knobs is our Bennington knob. Made in Bennington, Vermont in the 1850's, the knob is hand-swirled with three colors of clay and fired in an oven to give the illusion of being marble or wood. Ours are made just like the originals!✨🚪

On the 5th day of Christmas, Charleston Hardware gave to me… 5 GOLDEN (doorbell) RINGS!✨

On the 3rd day of Christmas, Charleston Hardware Co. gave to me... THREE (neoclassical) French Sets, two federal knobs, and a gorgeous new restoration project! 🗝

Our Neoclassical Style French Shell Pattern dates back to the 1890's. It was first made by Sargent & Co. of New Haven Connecticut, and was originally named - Froantenac. The back plates feature a stylized shell at the top and French scroll design. We have reproduced this pattern by using lost wax investment casting. 🕯 This process is more time consuming and expensive than traditional sand casting. It's used to capture the finest details, to give you museum quality results. Charleston Hardware Co. is one of the few reproduction hardware manufacturers that still offers this casting technique. Check it OUT!✨
