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.
