Hand forged house number four in font Style A
Font Style A makes for a very nice somewhat elegant number that really looks great on any home. The asymmetry of these numbers along with the forging makes them truly one of a kind. These are not your ordinary house numbers!
While most house numbers are made overseas and stamped out of thin gauge material then painted, ours are cut from heavy 3/8″ iron plate and hand forged in our blacksmith shop in Winthrop Washington. Each number is a truly unique forging with a hand hammered finish. The numbers are then drilled and heavy tumbled for an hour. Finally, the numbers are given two coats of lacquer, front and back to preserve and protect the natural finish of the iron. No black paint is ever used. We pride ourselves on the unique hand finished quality of an American Blacksmith made forged house number.
The above number comes complete with our etched and blackened screws at no charge!

Helpful Mounting Tips:
For most all cases the screws we provide free of charge with your order will work fine for wood, metal, synthetic and most home siding. These are specially blackened and waxed #10 x 1-1/4″ screws designed to complement your new numbers. You will receive two screws for each number ordered.
In situations where you would like to mount the numbers on stone, masonry, stucco or brick we suggest using masonry inserts like what is shown on the right. This kit is available from most home improvement stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s. The kit shown is Home Depot store SKU # 424956 and cost less than $10. For mounting the house numbers to any surface we recommend using blue painters tape to layout a level horizontal stripe as a guide for the bottom of each number, then position the bottom of the number on the tape and mark the holes for the first number. You can also mark the tape to represent the edge of the number so you can equispace the distance between each number. The basic measure twice, drill once philosophy. Remember you can always contact us with any questions.
