Wendell August Forge is America’s oldest and largest forge, producing hand-wrought ornamental metalware and elegant giftware in aluminum and other metals since 1923. The company was founded in Brockway, Pennsylvania by Wendell McMinn August, who, at age 38, was active in the coal industry.
Of course, everything on the Wendell August website is handmade in the USA including the 12 x 15 x 10 Inch Keepsake Chest; three styles to choose from, all made with hammered aluminum. Also the US made Jewelry is exquisite; the bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and UpCycled products are worth a view through the Jewelry Studio website tab.
