Antique Old Style Furniture Casters were used in the mid 1800's on small tables and chairs. Old style refers to this early type with a thick stem.
These old style furniture casters are reproduced to match originals. Each is solid brass crafted from substantial castings. Finish is antique, it is darkened to look old. Old style brass casters are defined by the unusual distinctly shaped stem that is short and thick. Caster swivels at swivel-joint between fork and leg plate.
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.
Old-style thick stem requires larger mounting hole than standard casters. It must fit tightly into drilled hole, in furniture leg, with as little play as possible.
Round caster-plate adds additional support under furniture leg. Attach with 3 wood screws.
If furniture has missing or damaged casters: Replace all casters to insure uniform height, style and appearance.
