The Mystique of Detail…Vintage Masonic Door Hardware

We are amazed at the detail, quantity, and variation in vintage Masonic door hardware produced in the late 19th century and early 20th century.  Seeing so many intricate designs, custom-built for various Masonic Temples harkens back to a golden age of fine hand-crafted metalwork.
