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.
