THE ARMORY COLLECTION
Inspired by the
The Revolutionary War wasn’t won through battles alone.
To keep pace with the might of British industry, Virginia desperately needed new resources and craftspeople played a huge role. Metalsmiths took red-hot iron from the fires of their forges and hammered it into a variety of tools, hardware, and weaponry to strengthen the colony.
Distinctive forms of iron and steelwork in the Colonial Williamsburg collections — for example, the graceful curvature in a bayonet, an icon of the American Revolution — inspired the Armory collection.
THE FRONTIER COLLECTION
During a time of great expansion, frontier settlers needed the right tools in this uncharted land. The long rifle, a distinctly American innovation, was needed for hunting, and legendarily helped win the Revolution. Much more accurate than a musket, the long rifle was a key component of our victory and serves as a symbol of American ingenuity and craftsmanship.
The Frontier Collection was inspired by the process by which rifle barrels were made by hand.
