Ironmongery. A brief history.

Ironmongery is a term that covers a number of metal items for the home or office, such as locks, nails, screws, door furniture. The earliest reference to ‘ironmonger’ recorded in English dates back to 1362 and referred to someone who was involved in the trade of iron goods. A more recent definition of ‘ironmonger’ would be: “someone who is in the trade of selling and repairing iron and steel wares, specifically door handles and door and window furniture”.

The word ‘Ironmonger’ is derived from the words “iron” and “monger”. The word ‘monger’ comes from Middle English and is closely related to words such as market, commerce, or merchant. In other words, an Ironmonger has something to do with the trade of iron.

More recently ironmongery is often used more specifically to refer to door handles and door furniture. Otherwise known as “Door Ironmongery”. In modern times, Ironmongery also refers to all things metal – not just iron. Steel, aluminium and even other materials are common materials used in modern ironmongery!

When someone refers to ironmongery in 2021, they are most likely referring to door handles and door furniture; or door ironmongery.

Door Ironmongery is the term for door handles and door furniture. Door ironmongers are often used to refer to people who sell these items, but the word can also be used more specifically to refer to any individual item of which a person sells. For example, “door handles” or “door furniture”.

Some common examples of door handles are knobs, levers, and push-plates. The most popular type of door handle is the lever, which is a type of small steel bar with an L-shaped end that is attached to a fulcrum or pivot through which you pull to open or close the door.

An infinite pool of Ironmongery possibilities.

Ironmongery is often used in combinations with other materials like wood, glass, metal, plastic, etc.
