How Our Washington, DC Antique & Vintage Store Got Its Start
Born of a need for accuracy in renovation and restoration, The Brass Knob Architectural Antiques began in a townhouse located in an area known for antiques. Our uncommon inventory included many of the hard-to-find items necessary for restoring a home or business to its true character. While period furnishings and collectibles are the mainstay of the antiques stores, it can be difficult for homeowners, and interior designers, to locate such hard-to-find items as antique chandeliers, mantels, and architectural ornaments necessary for authentic restoration.
