      Yes, I can.  One the Links page of my web site in the “shopping” section of my web site I have links to a number of hardware vendors.  Most of them carry various medieval or “medievaloid” hardware.  My favorite vendor, though, is Lee Valley Hardware, which has a line of simulated “hand wrought” hardware.  The look of hand made, at the prices of automated work.  Check the “antique steel” and “forged” lines of strap hinges for good results.

            Subject: [MedievalSawdust] Hardware for medieval -style woodwork.

            Gentles of the List,
            can anyone recommend any US-based hardware manufacturers who offer chest and cabinet hardware simulating black-hand-forged work of the late Middle Ages?
             I've spent several hours in online searches so far, without success. Maybe I'm asking the wrong questions of my search engines.
             
            We only have 2 local Builders' Merchants in our little Island, - and, as far as they are concerned - if it doesn't come as a plastic-wrapped pre-pack suitable for modern-design joinery, they just don't want to know about "special Orders".
             
            What am I seeking in this "simulated black iron" finish?
            Chest corner straps; various designs of hinges both butt and strap - from the small  for coffers - to large enough to hang a 6ft6ins door;chest and drawer handles; hasps & staples and period padlocks/fetterlocks; and replicas of 15th C., keyed mortice locks with their old-fashioned "skeleton-type" keys.
             
            There must be British specialist Makers of this sort of hardware - because the re-enactment and living history Market in the UK is considerable, and seems to be growing apace - but so far I haven't been able to locate any UK-based Makers/Suppliers.
             
            Your help would be much appreciated.


            Yours in Service,
            Matthew
