At Wendell August Forge, our heritage is preserved by our artisans and craftsmen, who use an original eight-step process to produce every heirloom piece in aluminum, bronze, pewter, sterling silver, and other metals. It’s rich history still sings with every strike of our hammers amid the chorus of crackling forge fires.
Founded by Wendell McMinn August, the forge bearing his name began as a decorative ironwork business. August and his early partners specialized in one-of- a-kind fireplace andirons, candlesticks, lighting standards, doorknockers, latches, railings, and grilles for windows and doors. Later, the forge would receive a commission to create decorative aluminum gates and elevator doors. Working with the new metal opened bold new opportunities, and lead to a new era of design innovation. As sales of Wendell August giftware soared, the company expanded its product line to include Christmas ornaments, personalized gifts, jewelry, and other treasured works both functional and ornamental.
At Wendell August Forge, we manifest the same painstaking dedication to quality artistry craftsmanship as our founders. Since 1923, our time tested works of functional art continue as family favorite ways to commemorate life’s special moments.
