Clawfoot Tubs, Vent Covers, and Antique Reproduction Hardware Made In the USA

As Independence Day approaches, it seems appropriate to spend some time reviewing Shop 4 Classics products that are made here in the USA.

Restoria Bathtub Company Clawfoot Tubs
Restoria Bathtub Company manufacturers high quality acrylic clawfoot tubs from their facilities in Shannon, Mississippi. Restoria acrylic clawfoot tubs are replicas of antique cast iron clawfoot tubs. The Restoria clawfoot bathtubs feature an exterior texture and character marks that make each tub slightly different-just as was the case with authentic cast iron clawfoot tubs manufactured in America in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Reggio Register Vent Covers
Located in Massachusetts (one of the original 13 colonies and home to Plymouth Rock), Reggio Register is a premier manufacturer of metal air return grilles and heat registers. The Reggio Register aluminum air return grilles and brass air return grilles are still manufactured in the US as are most of the Reggio Register cast iron air return grilles.

Artesano Iron Works Hand Forged Iron Home Hardware
Also located in one of the original 13 colonies, Artesano Iron Works produces handforged wrought iron hardware from its facilities in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (home of the Liberty Bell). Artesano Iron Works craftspeople utilize centuries old blacksmithing techniques to create hand forged wrought iron cabinet hardware, shutter hardware, and other home hardware.

Tailored Vents Wood Vent Covers
Entering the Union as the 32nd US state in 1858, Minnesota is home to Tailored Vents. Tailored Vents is a family owned business committed to providing the finest wood heat registers and wood air return grilles manufactured in the US.

Craftsmen Hardware Company Handcrafted Copper Hardware
Craftsmen Hardware Company manufacturers most of its hand hammered Arts & Crafts style copper door hardware and architectural hardware from America's heartland in Marceline, Missouri. Craftsmen Hardware Company artisans individually hand cut, hand hammer, and hand finished hardware just as it was done in the USA during the Arts & Crafts movement.

Mission Metalworks Copper & Bronze House Numbers and Hardware
Mission Metalworks copper and bronze house numbers and cabinet hardware products are also manufactured in America's heartland. Headquartered in Mission, Kansas, Mission Metalworks copper and bronze hardware is cast in a nearby foundry from minimum 95% recycled material. Made in the USA and green too!

From your friends at Shop 4 Classics, have a safe and happy 4th of July!
