    I was wondering if I could post a picture of a piece of hardware for which I am looking for a match. Is this the correct place to do such a thing? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    You can e-mail a picture (in .jpg format please) at orion@horton-brasses.com, I will be happy to help.

    Unfortunately the blog is not set up to post pictures. If I understand correctly, there are some server and tech problems with pics in this format.

    I am looking for a bolt for an antique rope high bed. It is approx. 6 1/2″ long. Can anyone help me find one?

    Mary- While we cannot repair them, we can probably provide a new bail that will fit the post. Can you send us the broken part? Send it to:

    We have bed bolts for wooden beds in 6″ or 7″ lengths. To the best of my knowledge no one makes 6-1/2″ anymore. A professional refinisher will be able to fit a new 7″ bolt to your old bed with a little work. You can check your local yellow pages under “refinishing” to find someone. Other than that, you can look online for actual antique bed hardware. http://www.houseofantiquehardware.com may be able to assist. I wish I could offer more suggestions.

    I am trying to locate a replacement for a porcelain ball finial that was on a white wrought iron bed. I occasionally see them on new beds, but can’t find anyone who will sell just the porcelain ball finial. Do you know of any suppliers?

    I am looking to rebuild a dresser and would like to find out where I can get the metal tracks for the drawers to slide out the drawers easly. Wood on wood just does not work to well. I don’t even know the proper name for them. but I would like to find out some more information and order them.
