Replacing Your Antique Doors
Replacing a door is never an easy task, no matter how many DIY sources you’ve consulted. When you’re replacing an antique door you take on an entirely new set of challenges. As you’ve invested money and/or time in restoring your door to its original beauty, you certainly don’t want to detract from that beauty by using less-than-authentic hardware. You can’t just run down to your local big box home improvement center and purchase the necessary hardware.
Your only solution is to find antique door hardware for your project. Antique and vintage door hardware are a necessity, not only for their aesthetic qualities, but because they were originally crafted to go with your antique door. When replacing these items, you don’t want to incur damage to your door because you need to make adjustments in lining up modern hinge screws, or securing a replica knob. You want your restoration project to be as authentic and true to your home’s architectural period as possible. You’ll need to utilize antique and vintage hardware such as door knobs, hinges and plates, specific to your home’s architectural era.
Antique Door Knobs
Antique door knobs have become quite popular, and harder to find. Now being used in many ways, from artwork, to coat hooks, antique doorknobs are quite lovely. Glass knobs, etched brass, cast iron, Dresden and many other styles are available at The Brass Knob Architectural Antiques. The addition of the right antique door knob makes all the difference in a successful restoration.
Antique Door Hinges
As stated earlier, having the appropriate hinge for your door, or cabinet, is a necessity. The Brass Knob has plentiful inventory of antique hinges and vintage door hardware for every restoration project. Consult our online catalogue, or browse our DC area store, to find the hinges you require.

Antique Push Plates
Push plates are a beautiful detail to any door. Antique and vintage push plates are works of art. Brushed or polished, brass, bronze, or iron, etched or plain, a push plate adds quality to your antique door.
Obtaining authentic antique and vintage door hardware for your restored home can be time-consuming.
