From the Anvil
For over fifteen years From the Anvil have been designing and manufacturing architectural high quality, hand-made, functional ironmongery from their base in Wales.
Manufacturing takes place at their site in the Welsh hills, with a workshop, design hub, showroom, offices and warehouse that has a vast stockholding to achieve swift delivery times.
From the Anvil designs are based on timeless classics with new contemporary twists to combine style with functionality and ease of use.
The traditional hand-forged process of shaping the base metal, using fire and an Anvil means their products retain both strength and beauty and also means no two pieces are identical, each one a unique work of art that will only enhance its setting.
From the Anvil’s products are available in various finishes:
The distinctive From The Anvil Beeswax finish is their most popular finish. It is treated with a special wax that imparts a subtle richness to the metal, which adds a unique charm to any property. This gives excellent protection where products are fitted internally and occasionally maintained with wax.
The traditional Powder Coat is suitable for internal and external use. It provides an attractive and durable corrosion resistant finish that can last for many years. It is an excellent low maintenance option for exterior ironmongery applications.
The Pewter Patina finish is suitable for internal and external use, as it has excellent anti-corrosion properties. It beautifully highlights the texture of the hand forged steel. We have a few designs that are unique to the pewter range, and again look very sympathetic in an older building, or where a more traditional style is required.
The Bronze finish is quite different to other oil rubbed bronze versions on the market. The finish will not wear and requires very little maintenance, being well suited to external or internal applications.Bronze harks back to a bygone era when only aristocrats and the well-off could afford to enhance their stately homes, mansions and town houses with the rare and expensive bronze metal.

These door handles also have great functionality, available with a non-locking latch backplate, standard UK locking backplate or bathroom locking backplate with a turn and release to suit a wide range of applications.
