The Tiffany candlestick represents the era of grand family estates on the Hudson River in New York, carrying on the tradition of a time when the absolute finest in quality was routine.

The Novelli candlestick from the original Novelli townhouse in historic Georgetown, Washington,DC, is a superb example of the clear, crisp elegance of America's federal period. And finally from the elegant plantations of the South, the Small Cricket candlestick is a replica from the Baskin residence in Greenville, Mississippi.

What is a Blow Poker?

What is a Blow Poker and how do I use a Blow Poker?

A combination of a bellows and a poker, Virginia's Blow Poker utilizes the principle of air movement discovered by Bernoulli (1700-1782). A Jefferson Brass exclusive, this exquisitely designed firetool is the best way to restart a dwindling fire. This piece is hand cast in solid brass and is an all in one solution to your fireplace needs. A recent article written by New York designer Bunny Williams in House Beautiful praises Virginia's Blow Poker as the "only firetool you need!" Simply blow through the mouthpiece, pointing the poker at the base of the embers, and watch your fire instantly re-ignite! Use the poker end to adjust the logs. Virginia's Blow Poker was designed with the Shaker tradition in mind, uniquely combining both function and art. This wonderful fireplace accessory comes with a solid brass mounting hook and screws. It is easily attached to any wall or mantel.

Solid Brass Tabletop Accessories

Today, the authoritative medium of brass is chosen for works of art, both decorative and functional. The Jefferson Brass Company proudly presents its tabletop collection of gifts and home accents. Each is made to a specific weight, and our talented craftsmen create each one by hand. After the pieces are cast, they are meticulously hand polished to a brilliant sheen. At Jefferson Brass we urge you to look closely for the clues that these pieces are hand made. Because of the completely handcrafted workmanship of each piece, you may be able to discern very small inclusions, imperfections, and even slight size variations in the pieces. These are not considered flaws! Rather this is the key to the intrinsic value of something truly made by hand. Each will have its own individual character, and we ask hat you accept this as an inherent part of the manufacturing process. Uniqueness is thus guaranteed. These items may be ordered hand polished to insure that the brilliant luster of hand polished brass remains or lacquered with a clear seal to help prevent tarnishing. Our tabletop accessories will last forever and their heirloom quality serves as a reminder of the grace, technique and tradition of excellent craftsmanship that has been meticulously maintained for over 36 years. You will immediately recognize the difference in our brass pieces from other manufacturers because of their extraordinary weight. We believe our products are superior. They will sell themselves. Just pick one up. Feeling is believing!

The universal symbol for hospitality and welcome throughout America, and especially in Virginia for nearly 200 years, has been the pineapple. The design of our pineapple trivet and pineapple bookend/doorstop dates back to 1789 in South Carolina when it was struck by a plantation outside of Charleston to commemorate the ratification of the U.S. Constitution. When the great clipper ships and merchant vessels of colonial days returned from their voyages bearing exotic fruits from the West Indies, captains and sailors alike would display a pineapple over their door as a sign to friends of their return home safely and that visitors were welcome. It has evolved over the years into a wonderful symbol of gracious living. Truly, this is a ‘performing’ work of art.

Another example of American art/memorabilia is the Key to the Bastille. In 1790, the Marquis de Lafayette presented the Key to the Bastille to George Washington as a symbol of freedom. Today, the original "Key to the Fortress of Despotism" hangs in a glass case in the central hall of Mount Vernon, George Washington's plantation on the Potomac River. As an executive gift, paperweight or decorative accessory, this historical memento pays tribute to the ideals that have made our country great.
