PAG E S 4 - 21 HAND-FORGED IRON N Hardware produced by the local blacksmiths at their forge and anvil was common to many early American homes. Our blacksmiths take great pride in authentically reproducing these pieces, one by one, using 18th century tools and techniques. This hardware is carefully built to ensure that it will function, as designed, for many years to come. PAG E S 22 - 38 PERIOD LIGHTING N Lighting is a most important aspect of 18th century decor. Our copper and tinsmiths recreate, by hand, a very comprehensive selection of candle and electrified fixtures which are historically correct for restorations of the period. Using only traditional materials such as tin, copper and brass, the metals are left with a natural finish which will darken slightly with time. BRASS & PORCELAINN PAG E S 39 - 4 6 Brass and porcelain designs of the 18th and early 19th centuries created a more formal decor as compared with the hand-forged iron of the village blacksmiths. Typically executed as a sand casting, the manufacture of this hardware required more complicated means for its production. Our selection of brass door and cabinet hardware was made only after careful research into the numerous methods used in making brass hardware today. Meticulous attention to detail and historically accurate appearance are the major criteria. MACHINE-FORGED IRON N PAG E S 47- 59 A collection of iron hardware which offers the design and function of our hand-forged iron at a more economical price. These pieces are the result of machine-forging and therefore do not show the hammer marks and natural, forged finish of the hand-wrought hardware. Our machine-forged hardware is very well made and designed for years of use. PERIOD ACCESSORIESN PAG E S 6 0 - 6 2 Here’s a new section in our catalog which casts your attention to the more decorative household items that mean so much to the “function and form” of period furnishings.

The “Bean Latch” (A) was the first and most popular design. Originally made by English blacksmiths and imported here, the American smiths soon began producing these and many other designs. The cusp and handle styles eventually became as numerous as the craftsmen who made them and we are pleased to offer a selection of four popular designs.

A carefully tended wood fire created heat to warm the house and prepare meals. The practice of cooking on a hearth was basic to 18th and early 19th century America. Family members could gather and assist as the food was prepared with ingenious techniques utilizing fireplace tools and hearth cooking utensils of the period. We at Historic Housefitters are pleased to make available replicas of some of these appliances and utensils and invite you to give hearth cooking a try. Preparing your food in this way requires “active participation” and, while not for the faint of heart, the techniques and fresh herbs produce flavors which are superb. Tinned Reflector Oven Here’s an exact reproduction of an 18th century reflector oven or “tin kitchen,” which is ideal for roasting meat or fowl. The curved design and brightly tinned surface reflect the fire’s heat around the food. Entrees prepared with this oven will give you the true flavor of authentic roasting! Comes complete with a hand-forged spit and 3 skewers which allow for timely rotation of the roast for even cooking. The oven’s rounded bottom acts as a drip pan and the door on the back provides for basting and testing as cooking progresses. 20” H x 20” W x 12” D. A) 1601-5 A) Reflector Oven E) Spider Modern ovens actually bake meat and cannot begin to duplicate the succulent roasts resulting from open-fire cooking. A “spider” is a long handled frying pan with 3 legs. It was used extensively around the fire to catch drippings from roasting meats and to sauté vegetables. The long handle provided some space between the fire and cook. 7” H x 9” Dia x 15” L. handle.

HEARTH COOKING HANDCRAFTED IN U.S.A. Cast Iron Cookery Skewers & Holder In practicing the art of hearth cooking, cast iron dutch ovens play a major role. Dutch ovens are extremely versatile and much quicker to use than a brick beehive oven for baking rolls, bread, pies, meats and vegetables. These are placed on a bed of coals and with their flanged lids securely in place, can be covered with more coals as needed. Cooking times are much the same as for modern ovens. Another example of a very common utensil used in open fire cooking, skewers were used to position meat or fowl on a spit. The holder was typically hung near the fireplace keeping the skewers in easy reach. The set comes with 6 skewers; 6” to 8” in length. Holder: 5” H x 51⁄2” W. J) 1653-1 J) Holder with 6 Skewers Long Handle Peel F) Dutch Oven-Round Lid The broad, flat blade and long handle of an 18th century peel was perfectly suited to the task of cooking in a beehive oven. Coals were moved from the hearth to pre-heat the oven for baking. The peel can also serve to manage a bed of coals on the hearth for use with Dutch ovens or cooking trivets. 48” L x 71⁄2” W. 1655-5 5 Qt: 101⁄4” dia. x 4” deep. 1655-7 7 Qt: 12” dia. x 43⁄4” deep. 1655-9 9 Qt: 131⁄4” dia. x 43⁄4” deep.

These pieces are not polished or lacquered but do receive a mild “antique” finish which chemically “ages” the metal. Once exposed to weather, natural aging takes over. When selecting a lantern remember that the piece will be outdoors, and should therefore be large enough to appear correct from a distance away.

Made from clay that was commonly found near riverbanks, the local potter produced an amazing selection of plates, pitchers, bowls, candlesticks and teapots to name a few! The majority of these items were glazed, making them impervious to moisture. Redware can be used to store and serve food and will easily withstand temperature necessary for baking. Potters would sometimes decorate their pieces with a white clay slip before glazing with simple line and dot designs.

MON.–FRI. 61 PEWTERWARE E) PERIOD ACCESSORIES N C) D) B) A) Early pewterware was made from a variety of J) alloys usually containing tin, copper, antimony and lead. The manufacturing process was one of casting to produce plates, cups, mugs and a wide assortment of other house wares. E) F) G) In the 18th century pewter was produced as a substitute for sterling silver and in widespread use as a more affordable alternative for setting the dinner table. The pewterware we offer is completely safe to use (it contains no lead), but unlike much of the reproduction pewter available today it has the soft patina and texture of the originals. We feel it is an essential element of period décor.
