Norman Corporation is a turn-of-the-century manufacturing company that still produces tin ceilings, molding, cornices, metal shingle roofing, siding and ornaments on antique rope drop hammers. Using dies from 1898, our products are produced in zinc, copper and brass. You can find patterns from several eras such as Victorian, Colonial, Gothic and Art Deco.

I have to say W.F. Norman's ceilings are probably the best quality and most authentic out there. They use heavier gauge metal than most of their competition and their products are just like the originals. Their paper catalog is an excellent resource that I believe is a reprint of the same catalog they were using around 1910.

We've ordered ceilings for two of our rooms from them.

Nice catalogue, nice products. And it comes with unsolicited recommendations.
