Brass Casters were used on furniture during the 19th and early 20th centuries. They are a stem type. Stem requires minimal install-space, making this style ideal for furniture with thin narrow legs. This classic style provides a time-honored appearance.
These reproduction casters are brass with a steel stem. Substantial fork and wheel are solid brass. Finish is polished, not lacquered. Stem-type is known as a spiral-threaded Philadelphia drive stem.
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.
If furniture has missing or damaged casters: Replace all casters to insure uniform height, style and appearance.
I needed to match two caster I had for a couple of years, and after much searching Paxton had the same brand and size. The woman I spoke with on the telephone gave good information that made me confident I had found a match. Very pleased with Paxton on all fronts.
I started my business back in 1972. I am basically an antique restorer, both upholstered and wooden furniture. I work by myself and do all my own restorations. I don’t purchase big orders from Paxton, because I am a custom shop, not a mass production type of business. I have been with you guys for around 40 plus years. I have always liked your company because you are courteous, fast, and sell at fair prices. You guys gave me a 10% discount years ago, and even though I buy very little now from you due to health and age problems, you still honor that discount. I’m 70 years old, and still working (not by choice), but I will still use Paxton for any of my hardware needs. You guys are a wonderful company, and I thank you for all the years of taking care of my (customers) needs. May GOD bless you all.
