The Historical Housefitting Company was originally launched in 1985 with a sampling of hand-forged iron and brass hardware displayed in a 20-page catalog. Our emphasis was and still is, on faithful, first rate reproductions and unfailing service. Since then, our catalog has more than doubled to bring you a comprehensive sourcebook for quality Hand-Forged Iron, 18th Century Lighting, Brass & Porcelain Hardware & Machine-Forged Iron Hardware.
In addition, you’ll also find a NEW category of Period Accessories which features exceptional reproductions relating to the colonial lifestyle. Our Hearth Cooking section offers you an exact replica of a “tin kitchen” and hand-forged utensils which will enable you to sample the foods and flavors of the 18th century!
We are very pleased to include architects, restoration contractors, designers and “old house enthusiasts” (like us!) among our customers. To each we offer the finest in products and services.
We are proud that all of our hand-forged iron and hand-made lighting are made by artisans in the U.S.A.
To all our customers we pledge the same high level of authentic quality and friendly service that we have provided since the day we received our first order. These two attributes have become the hallmark of our company.
