Large Industrial Castors made by Archibald Kenrick & Sons (set of four)
A superb set of four “Shepherd” castor wheels on mounts by Archibald Kenrick & Sons., most likely used originally on an industrial trolley or other heavyweight factory application. Each castor has been carefully cleaned and polished, and the original (not very attractive) paint removed to given them a striking and unashamedly functional appearance. We think there’s plenty of life left in these as part of a modern decor.
Each castor is 30cm (12 in.) in length and is designed (it seems) to be mounted at an angle across the corner of a trolley or other movable unit. Height from wheel to mount is approximately 15cm (6 in.) and the wheels have a diameter of 6cm (2¼ in.). The mounting points (four on each castor) will take an M5 bolt or screw thread. Each castor with mount weighs almost 600g (1½ lb.).
