Dating furniture by nails

The machine exhibited in 1844 is also illustrated by Laboulaye, and consists of a relatively sophisticated hand-cranked apparatus which cut, headed and pointed a nail from a coil of wire by a turn of the crank.

Late in the century Smith could still state, possibly erroneously, that their manufacture was “mainly carried on by Continental firms”.The rise of the wire nail for building construction is a feature of the last quarter of the 19th century.At the beginning of this period Knight could say little more than “chests and boxes from the continent of Europe and from Asia are found to be fastened with nails of this character”.Medium-sized nails run from 80,000 to 120,000 to the ton, and I have before me some beautifully-formed carpet nails, with large flat heads, of which a single ton of steel will make 3,870,000.It is an interesting fact that at the International Exhibition of 1862, I exhibited the first steel nails that were ever made.
