Antique Door Knobs

Unique vintage and antique doorknobs have become quite popular lately.  Utilized as art, crafted into items such as garment hooks, and towel hangers, and creatively integrated throughout homes to provide a flair and unique quality to an otherwise generic room, vintage and antique doorknobs are being recognized more and more for their ornamental quality in interior design, as well as function.  They can be fun, whimsical, and an eye-catching source for conversation.  You can be certain your vintage doorknobs will be noticed.

The elegance of a well-crafted vintage or antique doorknob can’t be reproduced.   Even the most ornate of modern doorknobs, hinges and hardware can’t compare to the original pieces.  The artistic qualities of authentic vintage home hardware, such as doorknobs, and doorknob sets, remains unique.

At The Brass Knob, we offer a wide selection of antique door knobs. Our antique door knobs come in a variety of styles from a number of different architectural eras. We are confident that you will be pleased with our selection and find the antique hardware that fits your wants and needs.

Antique Door Knobs For Home Restoration

For those involved in restoration, vintage and antique doorknobs provide a character of authenticity not found in replicas manufactured today.  Brass knobs, flush pulls and ornate door plates, representative of bygone eras in interior design, create an ambience right down to the last detail, and legitimacy can’t be denied.  In addition to providing a flair to the interior design of a restored home, antique and vintage doorknobs and hardware should be functional as well.

Those homeowners who take on a restoration project for the sheer enjoyment of the experience can appreciate vintage and antique hardware.  A true restoration can be an exciting project as you research your home’s history.  Returning your vintage home back to its original glory certainly includes restoring the hardware, including the doorknobs.

Finding the perfect doorknobs, door plates, hinges, and pulls can be a time-consuming chore.  Going from antique shop to architectural salvage sites, to online sources can end in disappointment and frustration.  Spending all of your free time poring over such tedious items isn’t much fun after a while, and you may be tempted to toss the authenticity out the window and go with something more replicative, and easier to find at your local big-box store.
