I stumbled upon a Franklin Gottshall book on Google.  In reading it, I came upon the following quote which I thought might be of interest:

"Good hardware is such an important item on furniture of good quality that it deserves special attention in a book of this kind.  Only the finest hardware obtainable should be used on the pieces presented here, and while the items needed may appear to be a bit high in price when  purchased, the quality of workmanship entailed in producing them, and the research and know-how required to ensure authenticity in their design, justify the small difference in cost between items of mediocre quality and those which are the very best obtainable."
