National Foundry

National Foundry began operations in Whitman, Massachusetts, in the early 1880s manufacturing cap guns in bronze and cast iron. Their line expanded in the early 1900s to include cast iron andirons, candlesticks, bookends, and doorstops. Purchasers could decorate their doorstops with any color scheme following directions in the National Foundry catalog. Today the company is called Whitman Foundry and produces grey iron for machinery parts.
