What You Need To Know About Kirkpatrick Black Ironmongery

Black Ironmongery has always been a popular choice for country homes. With its distinctive style and high durability, it is one of the most practical hardwearing materials for homes of distinction.
You may not know that Kirkpatrick have been one of the most popular producers of Black Ironmongery for many years. Established in the West Midlands UK in 1855 by their founder William Kirkpatrick, Esq.
Black Ironmongery Foundry
All of the Kirkpatrick Black Ironmongery is produced using authentic traditional casting methods, being cast in malleable iron.
Malleable iron is iron which has to be annealed to remove the carbon components. This makes it stronger and more durable than imported alternatives. Kirkpatrick is justifiably proud of their UK made range of products.
Black Iron Hooks
Their black ironmongery is crafted to the highest standards and they are confident that you will not buy a better quality product for your home. That is why we stock the complete range of Kirkpatrick's Black Ironmongery and also their Blacksmith Forge, Cast Brass and Rawnsley Range too.
Black Iron Window Casements
Each and every piece is lovingly crafted by hand over a six week period, ensuring each door handle, and window latch is unique and created to provide strength and quality which will last a lifetime.
Much of the black door and window furniture is based on patterns used by their foundry since its beginning in the 19th century. The Kirkpatrick Foundry workforce uses the same finishing and assembly techniques as back then.
Kirkpatrick Blacksmith Forge Letter Plate
The Blacksmith Forge range is stylish and has been inspired by the iconic Gothic architecture of the late Medieval period. It includes both door and cabinet furniture, plus other fittings and comes in different finishes to suit.
Cast Brass Lionhead Door Knocker
The Cast Brass range is modelled from select pieces of the Black Iron range.
There are so many superb items of Black Ironmongery from Kirkpatrick for your home you will be spoiled for choice. As the premier choice in Black Ironmongery, there are also full care instructions with each item.

Iron Works By Yester Home

Iron Works By Yester Home

Beautiful iron work can be found in many architectural buildings especially those from the Victorian era as the Victorians had to be some of the most prolific iron users in History. Some of the ornamental iron mongery could be said to be a by product of the industrial revolution which saw production of iron products taking off at an incremental rate. In Shropshire and the surrounding areas there is little left of the industrial age, where rural delights and country homes seek out traditional cast iron home wear to display in and around the home. Ironbridge in Shropshire was at the heart of the production of fine castings, ’ Iron ore was first smelted by Abraham Darby using easily mined "cooking coal". The coal was drawn from drift mines in the sides of the valley. As it contained far fewer impurities than normal coal, the iron it produced was of a superior quality’. Wikipedia.  
Traditional British Foundry Casting Iron
Bridgnorth is also a beautiful Historic town where many fine examples of country cottages and homes can be found from days gone by. Yester Home has captured this timeless quality beautifully in it’s cast iron home wear which is manufactured in our foundry in Wolverhampton. Our offices and dispatch can be found just outside this Historic town in the nearby Upper Aston Farm, at Upper Aston Claverley.  
We also have a stand at Jones's vintage and retro centre nearby where many delightful household items reproduced from original Victorian patterns can be found displayed in this distinctly vintage setting.  
Some of the most popular items to be made into iron work include ornamental cast iron shelf  brackets, door porters and balcony railings.
 Cast Iron Brackets
 
Today we can see country manor houses using cast iron hat and coat hooks in their entrance hallways, but also country cottages and farm houses.

Cast iron has become the popular choice for iron work pieces of all kinds in and around the home, including, table top trivets and pan stands, brackets, door furniture, coat hooks, drawer pulls, cabinet knobs and pulls.

It is a delight to know that authentic manufacturers still exist today in post Victorian England and that it is still possible to buy some excellently crafted ironwork.

The majority of foundries that produce high quality work are still to be found in and around the Black Country and some who manufacture the fine cast ware for Yester Home have many years expertise in the industry, sometimes able to produce bespoke castings where required.
 
Cast iron lends itself well to use around the home, especially in the kitchen and hallway where an array of home wear has been designed and cast since the Victorians began casting in iron. Some superb pieces can still be found today from original manufacturers such as Kenrick, but for consistence and supply, today’s metal workers can produce some wonderful cast household ironwork, that can be enjoyed as much by modern home owners as their fore fathers.
