The fenders shown here have been made recently. At Dowding Metalcraft, the design of a fender can be custom-built to your own specification.
All our traditional club fenders (fender seat) are individually built in our factory. A club fender adds an extra dimension by providing useful extra seating. There are four seating styles available: seat across, curved centre half loop, elliptical half-loop and square front.
The shape of our fenders can be square, splayed or curved frame and can be manufactured in brass or steel. Generally, the tubular uprights are brass. These designs are barley twist, rope twist, square tube, reeded tube or plain round tube. Square steel and round steel tubes are also available.
A variety of leather seats can be fitted either plain, piped deep buttoned and the seats can be antiqued stained and polished. Also, we can upholster using your own material.
Fenders are usually polished and lacquered. They can also be finished in matt black or a combination of polished and matt black, e.g. matt black fender base with polished brass tubular supports.
We also specialise in a range of Ball and Fret fenders, all of which are tailor made to your specification.
