Porcelain Wheel Casters were the darling of the Victorian era. These reproductions are like casters used on antiques, creating a showy conclusion to the bottoms of furniture. Historically they were used on walnut chairs and marble top tables. 

Porcelain wheel casters are beautifully made. Each has a solid brass fork with white ceramic wheel. Brass fork has shiny polished finish. It is not lacquered and will age over time. Caster swivels at swivel-joint between fork and leg plate. 

Measure Plate-type Casters

  • Wheel diameter: diameter of caster wheel
  • Raises Furniture: is the height the furniture will be raised above the floor
  • Caster Stem:  measured diameter x height. 
  • Caster Plate: is a circular plate, with 3-4 screw holes, helps support furniture leg.

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.

  • Spiral-threaded drive stem 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 4 wood screws.
  • Please see: Installing plate type casters for more information

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