Porcelain Wheel Brass Casters were a popular style during the Victorian era. These white ceramic, porcelain wheels contrast beautifully with the dark woods used during this 19th century era.  Stem requires minimal install-space, making this style ideal for furniture with thin narrow legs.

This reproduction caster has a brass fork, white ceramic wheel with steel stem. Stem-type is known as a spiral-threaded Philadelphia drive stem. 

Measure Stem-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. 

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.
