Custom Apple Branch Pulls: Hand Forged Iron Appliance Handles
This Is Not A Cast Copy But An Original Fine Art Piece.
Handmade In The U.S.A. By A Master Blacksmith Using Hammer And Anvil Over A Coal Fired Forge.
The great Arts and Craftsmen of the early 20th century, such as Greene & Greene, famously incorporated many arboreal, floral and other natural elements into their designs. These custom apple branch pulls from ArtFactory.com brings not only that style into the 21st century, but is created in the same hand and craft that would have been used over a century ago. We build our hardware products from hand forged wrought iron, hammered into shape by the hands of our master blacksmiths. Every handle and hinge is made in the U.S.A., by our master craftsmen, just as we have done since 1913. When it comes to custom door handles, the difference between a product that is meant to be disposable, and one that is built to last is in the details. We are firm believers that if you are going to build something, you build it once, and build to last forever. At ArtFactory.com we build the highest quality, custom door hardware that is available anywhere at any price. That is why we build our products from solid, hand forged wrought iron. Unlike other metals, wrought iron does not rust away and corrode with exposure to the elements. Wrought iron lasts for centuries, and builds a patina that will only look better as time goes on. Our theme door pulls are created custom made to order by our world class metal smiths using old world, tried and tested techniques. Like any of our custom hardware designs, the custom apple blossom pulls can be made to fit any application, in this case, the customer chose an appliance application, and had these handles made for their custom built in refrigerator/freezer.
In addition to top grade materials, we also believe in manufacturing our products using time consuming, tried and tested methods from antiquity. What this means is that our hardware products are never cast, drop forged, or made using any other fast process. Our custom handles are all hand forged by master blacksmiths using hammer and anvil over a coal fired forge. This method allows for a product that history has proven will last for generations. Furthermore, details such as the individually handcrafted leaves, and the detailed tree branch bark create an item that is close to as it would look in nature as is possible with metal. These unique details give the custom apple branch pulls a character that is uniquely its own. Because our products are never mass produced, or made from a mold, each piece is a one-of-a-kind that will never be exactly reproduced. The apple branch door pull as pictured, features patina finish as pictured. You can choose this, or your's can be finished in any color, or combination of colors that you choose. At ArtFactory.com we have unlimited hardware customizations, and options that are limited only by your imagination.
Custom Apple Branch Pull Finish Details
We build our custom apple branch pull, and all custom door hardware products from pure wrought iron, because unlike other metals, wrought iron doesn't corrode with exposure to the elements. Furthermore, all of our genuine wrought iron hardware is finished with a hand applied, iron oxide, advance patina. This patina is heat applied at over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit so that it will bond to the molecules of the metal. What this means is a finish that will stand the test of time and look better with age. Because our finishes actually become part of the metal, they will never crack, flake, or fade like powders and paints. All of this adds up to a finish that will last forever with little or no maintenance. You can choose a single or multi tone finish. This means your handle can be made in any color to match your decor, with green leaves and red grapes as would be seen in nature, or any other color combination to match your existing décor.

Elements And Characteristics Of Craftsman Door Hardware
Craftsman door hardware refers to the hardware components used in Craftsman-style doors, which are characterized by their simplicity, functionality, and emphasis on craftsmanship. Craftsman-style architecture emerged in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as a response to the ornate and elaborate Victorian styles. Craftsman doors and their hardware reflect the principles of the Arts and Crafts movement, emphasizing handcrafted elements, natural materials, and clean lines.
Here are some common types of door hardware associated with Craftsman-style doors:
- Door Knobs: Craftsman door knobs are typically made of metal, such as brass or bronze, and feature a simple, utilitarian design. They often have a rectangular or square shape with clean edges and may have a hammered or textured finish for added visual interest. The knobs are generally solid and substantial in feel.
- Door Plates: Door plates, also known as escutcheons, are the decorative plates that surround the doorknob or keyhole. Craftsman-style door plates are usually rectangular or square, matching the shape of the door knob. They are often made of metal and may feature hammered textures, engraved details, or geometric patterns.
- Hinges: Craftsman door hinges are typically visible and made of metal, providing both functional support and decorative accents. They are often strap hinges or butterfly hinges, featuring simple and sturdy designs. These hinges are usually finished in a complementary metal tone to the door hardware, such as brass or oil-rubbed bronze.
- Door Handles: Craftsman-style doors may feature handles instead of traditional knobs. These handles are typically long and horizontal, known as "lever handles" or "grip handles." They offer a more ergonomic grip and can be made of metal, wood, or a combination of both. The handles often have a streamlined and straightforward design that aligns with the Craftsman aesthetic.
- Door Knockers: Craftsman-style door knockers are another common feature. They are often made of metal and feature a simple, geometric design. Craftsman door knockers may incorporate motifs such as squares, rectangles, or stylized nature elements like leaves or branches.
Craftsman door hardware is known for its durability, functionality, and attention to detail. It complements the overall design and philosophy of Craftsman-style architecture, emphasizing the beauty of natural materials and the skill of the craftsman. Whether it's through the use of metals, textures, or geometric motifs, Craftsman door hardware adds an authentic and distinctive touch to the doors in these architectural styles.
Elements And Characteristics Of Tree Branch Door Handles
Tree branch-shaped door handles are a unique and nature-inspired design choice for door hardware. These handles mimic the appearance of a branch or twig, bringing an organic and rustic feel to the door. They can be an excellent addition to homes with a natural or woodland-inspired aesthetic. Here are some key points about tree branch-shaped door handles:
- Design and Materials: Tree branch door handles are typically crafted from metals like brass, bronze, or iron. These materials allow for intricate detailing and durability. The handles are designed to resemble the shape and texture of a real tree branch, with twists, curves, and irregularities to mimic the organic nature of branches found in the wild.
- Sizes and Variations: Tree branch door handles come in various sizes and styles to accommodate different door types and preferences. They can be designed as a single handle or as a pull handle with two ends. Some designs may incorporate additional elements, such as leaves or knots, to enhance the natural aesthetic.
- Installation: Tree branch handles are installed on doors in a similar manner to other door handles. They typically consist of two ends that attach to either side of the door, secured with screws or bolts. The handles should be positioned ergonomically, allowing for a comfortable grip and ease of use.
- Versatility: Tree branch door handles can be used in various interior and exterior door applications, including entry doors, interior doors, cabinet doors, or even furniture pieces. They can add a touch of nature-inspired charm to spaces such as cabins, rustic-themed homes, or homes with a strong connection to nature.
- Maintenance: Like any other door handle, tree branch-shaped handles require regular cleaning and maintenance to keep them in good condition. Depending on the material used, the handles may need periodic polishing or cleaning with appropriate solutions to prevent tarnish or corrosion.
Tree branch-shaped door handles offer a unique and visually striking alternative to traditional door handles. They bring a sense of whimsy, natural beauty, and a connection to the outdoors into the interior design. Whether used as a focal point or to complement an existing natural theme, these handles can make a statement and add a touch of organic elegance to any door.
