The Tanner's Craft Story

Colonial Bronze is celebrating over 90 years of manufacturing high-end cabinet and architectural hardware in Torrington, Connecticut. Since 1927, our hardware has been produced in-house, from start to finish, by American craftsmen and women. Although our facility and product catalog have drastically expanded over time, we’re still committed to our roots of providing the finest quality products, in the most eco-friendly way possible. For over twenty years, we have offered our “Finishes for Life” guarantee; and for over a decade, our products have been certified by SCS Global Services for containing at least 94% Pre-Consumer Recycled Content in all of our products.

Currently, we offer an endless array of solid brass knobs, cabinet handles, appliance pulls, bathroom accessories, and much more. Our products vary from Traditional to Transitional to Ultra-Contemporary. We offer an industry leading variety of finishes and more options for customization than any other brass hardware manufacturer. If you can’t find it at “The Bronze,” you won’t find it anywhere.

Our History: A Commitment To Fine American Craftsmanship

As a third-generation family owned and operated small business, we take pride in our commitment to  and tradition. For over 90 years, every order placed with Colonial Bronze has been hand-crafted, piece by piece, in our factory located in the Northwest Hills of Connecticut. Every product begins here in the form of raw brass before it is cut, prepped and hand-finished by one of our experienced team of American artisans.

At one point, over 75 percent of the United States’ brass was produced here in “Brass-Valley.” Now, we’re one of the last American fine hardware manufacturers. And we are the only American fine hardware manfactuer that hand works all of our 47 finishes in our factory,  

With this level of manufacturing control we are able to offer an attention to detail, product variety, and capability that is second-to-none.
