Louisiana Foundries and Antique Iron Beds

   Pittsburgh was the center of steel production in this country back in the 1800’s. So if you had a enterprise that relied on steel and iron ore, like antique iron beds, for the manufacturing of what you produced, it behooved you to locate that business as close to the source of those essential materials as possible. Hence the cluster of hundreds upon hundreds of small individually owned foundries that sprung up within a very close, one day trip of Pittsburgh. Freight prices and time were a particular issue for manufacturers back then. Profit margin was narrow and just about every penny counted in the manufacturing process. If you decided to live in New York or Vermont or some southern state, you had to count on having more of a stock pile of raw materials……which meant more cash was tied up in those materials.

I’ve had beds that were incredibly elaborate and scrolled, yet had old black iron finishes on them and they appealed to men without a question. Yet when the same beds had been painted in a white or some gentle pastel with a crackle finish, most men would… Read more

“Green” Decorator’s and Their Choice of Antiques

   Antique iron beds have turn into one of the most well-liked furniture products being used today with “Green” decorators. As we all know, there are no better sustainable items than antique furniture. Their “atomic footprint” has already been determined and subtracted from the environment. It’s impact, whatever it may have been has been lessened over the previous 150 to 200 years to the point of next to absolutely nothing. Yet to attempt to and create that same item today, would leave a terrible impact on the environment and air we breath. Iron beds have gone through generation to generation and still maintained their original strength and splendor. They take absolutely nothing from the environment to create as do reproductions that are presently being made and require new steel production and all the power essential to create them. New York, Texas and Florida decorators seem to be at the forefront of “green decorators” and… Read more
