M-Marcus was founded in 1940 in East London, in an area known as “Ironmongers Row”, operated and managed by the same family over three generations. They have a reputation for producing quality ironmongery for the British market by combining old world values with the latest technologies to create products of exceptional quality and design.
The most well-known brand of M. Marcus is Heritage Brass which provides products made in hot forged Solid Brass. This brand has gone worldwide and has become one of the leading suppliers of architectural and electrical brassware in the U.K. The high quality standards are the result of years of high investment into the brand and the products are created through using the latest equipment.
Traditional styles are created through meticulous care and attention to tooling. Hot forging is the method used to create such high quality products and with the use of robots in the 1990’s, polishing is now a quality standard only maintained to that consistency by machine.
The Heritage Brass name was adopted in the 1980s and the company operates under both names. We really like the quality of the Heritage Brass hardware range, they use the finest quality materials to create a range that offers homeowners and designers a single source to coordinate different finishes of door and window hardware, electrical switches and sockets, and cabinet hardware, with some unique and unusual styling differences.
Heritage Brass has the largest coordinated range of hardware available in different finishes. Their range of standard finishes are; Polished Brass, Antique Brass, Polished Chrome, Satin Chrome, Satin Nickel. They have made nearly all their hardware accessories available in these finishes, which provides a much more complete range than many other manufacturers.
More Handles supply the entire Heritage Brass range. The website shows the bestselling handles in the range and includes some of their more popular and more unique styles such as;

Another fantastic collection from M. Marcus is their Contemporary Smooth Black Iron Door Hardware Range. This new range introduces a new look for authentic black iron door hardware, window fittings and cabinet handles and knobs.
Many of the black antique ranges currently available have an artificially enhanced antique look where a stippled effect is added to create a slightly uneven surface. In order to create an alternative choice and meet modern design preferences M. Marcus Ltd have removed the deep surface indentations leaving instead only the naturally occurring surface grains. This has created a much smoother contemporary appearance yet still maintaining a rustic appearance to the finish.
All products in this new Marcus Smooth Black Iron Door Hardware Range are made from malleable cast iron. This is treated with a zinc phosphating process and then powder coated to provide a durable black finish.
In addition a unique UV Protection is added to the powder coating process making this range a very good choice for external use. The natural greying that can sometimes occur on these types of finishes is much reduced on the new Marcus Smooth Black Iron Hardware Range.
Stainless Steel screws are supplied with every handle that prevents rusting of the screw and avoids any leakage of rust to the handle plate finish.
The range consists of a range of new designs in Smooth Black Iron, including Door Handles on Backplate, front door furniture, Traditional Thumb Latches and Cabinet Hardware and Cupboard Fittings.
