Architectural Salvage Online Store

What happens to the hardware and architectural details when an antique or vintage building gets remodeled? Fortunately, the world’s interest in architectural salvage has grown in recent years. It’s now possible to find online vintage door hardware, antique sconces, and old cast iron fixtures that someone else has discarded. The Brass Knob serves as your personal scout and purveyor of architectural salvage online.

We focus on procuring interesting and good-condition items including antique hardware, tile, metal brackets, bathroom hardware, and other architectural antiques. 

Rather than driving around town to root through a random assortment at a demolition yard, you can shop The Brass Knob for architectural salvage online and get lovingly spared and reclaimed antiques shipped right to your door, nationwide.

Browse our current catalog and feel free to contact us online with any questions.

What Should You Buy from Architectural Salvage?

When a home or building gets remodeled or torn down, sadly, the architectural features are often left at the curb. Our customers agree that these pieces of vintage hardware, mantels, balusters, and ironwork are some of the antiques most deserving of salvage!

Newer homes can benefit from salvaged hardware such as bronze or brass door knobs and drawer pulls with detailed design and weightiness that you just don’t see anymore. Period homes need architectural salvage to stay on-point—think of how a marble mantel or turned wood banisters could facilitate your period home rehab project.

Whether it’s a small item like an antique door hinge or a larger item such as stained glass windows for the entryway, your next architectural salvage find may be among our products.

Authentic, Charming Architectural Salvage Online

The Brass Knob’s architectural salvage online store brings you interior and exterior hardware and features from around 1870 to 1940. This includes a diverse selection of Georgian, Victorian, Arts and Crafts, Art Deco, and more.

Unlike many antiques dealers online, we focus on hard-to-find, one-of-a-kind architectural gems as well as decorative objects. We know it can be difficult to source larger items like crystal chandeliers and iron furniture. The Brass Knob has the artifact-quality vintage and antique pieces you need to make a bold statement.

Architecture is an art unto itself, and hardware and finishes make the finishing touches of a masterpiece. Items from the 19th and 20th centuries feature a unique aesthetic and uncommon craftsmanship, making architectural salvage more stylish and valuable than ever. With our online salvage hardware shop, you can find the next exciting element of your decor.
