Aes­thetic hard­ware.

Dec­o­ra­tive hard­ware is jew­elry for the home. Dat­ing to the Aes­thetic Move­ment (ca. 1868–1890), these styl­ized and Ja­panese-in­flu­enced pat­terns are suit­able for Stick and Shin­gle, Queen Anne, Ro­manesque, and other houses of the pe­riod. Cast in bronze and un­lac­quered to ac­quire patina, pat­terns are avail­able in the full range of hard­ware, from door sets and sash pulls to mail slots. Japanned re­lief brings out the de­tails. Pieces may be or­dered hand-an­tiqued to match ex­ist­ing old hard­ware. “Our mis­sion is to pre­serve his­tor­i­cal in­tegrity through the restora­tion and re­pro­duc­tion of vin­tage hard­ware,” says Eric Mills at Charleston Hard­ware. “We sell an­tique pieces, and our re­pro­duc­tions—copied di­rectly from orig­i­nals in iron, brass, or bronze—are fin­ished by hand.” See the ‘Ori­en­tal’ and ‘East­lake’ col­lec­tions.
