Antique Brass Casters are a historic stem type style. Stem requires minimal install-space, making this style ideal for furniture with thin narrow legs. They were often used on Victorian parlor chairs and small 19th century tables. 

These reproduction casters are brass with a steel stem. Substantial fork and wheel are solid brass. Finish is darkened to look old. Stem-type is known as a spiral-threaded Philadelphia drive stem.

Measure Stem-Type Casters

  • Wheel diameter: diameter of caster wheel

Install Casters

Load Capacity, caster strength and stability is directly related to correct installation. If a caster is incorrectly installed it will-not be strong or serviceable.

  • Threaded Stem Casters have a round shank with coarse threads known as a Philadelphia drive stem.
  • Use on round or square furniture legs.
  • Drill hole in furniture leg slightly smaller in diameter than diameter of drive stem. Depth should be approximately 1/4" deeper than length of caster stem.
  • Screw threaded steel Philadelphia drive stem up into pre-drilled hole.
  • Fit should be snug

If furniture has missing or damaged casters: Replace all casters to insure uniform  height, style and appearance.

Perfect size and condition

I bought an antique book stand (1930s) with a missing roller. Paxton Hardware had the exact size and configuration I needed. The perfect brass condition was the problem because I then had to take it to the grinding wheel to give it 90 years of fake wear and tear and then spritzed it with a little dark paint. It's hard to tell which is the new wheel now. It was packed very well and came cross country in a week! I now have a new go-to for hardware.

This caster fitted the foot of the Duncan Phyfe table perfectly..
