Durable Pieces of Art

Vintage ironwork and antique ironwork are literal works of art and add authenticity and value to any home restoration.  No period restoration, or décor, is complete without the addition of both decorative and functioning vintage ironwork.   Grate covers, bathroom fixtures, wall panels, register covers, and other interior pieces add lovely detail to your interior décor.  Exterior ironwork, such as decorative garden pieces, wrought iron and cast iron furniture, and garden gates, are quaint and reflect your sense of balance in your vintage restoration.

Finding just the right accent piece or fixture isn’t always an easy task.  For the discerning homeowner with an eye for detail, no replica will do.  Authentic and lovingly restored pieces of antique ironwork are the only items you want in your home, whether reflecting your interior décor, or legitimizing your renovated period home.
