Why collect antique hardware?

I have found that collecting hardware that came off a door 100+ years ago to be a fantastic hobby. The quality of the late 19th century antique bronze hardware made in the U.S.is amazing. I believe that if more people out there actually saw some of the intricate items that were made, there would be much more interest in either collecting as a hobby or put back to use to decorate your home. It seems like there is always something different that surfaces. Many pieces are finely detailed like jewellery and look great displayed.

I have been seriously collecting antique hardware for more than 20 years, from places all over the United States. When my collection became too large, I decided to offer some of it for sale to those who appreciate the high quality detailed bronze hardware of the past.

Most of the hardware has been lightly cleaned, only enough to remove either paint, built up varnish or grime. A lot of time and effort has been spent to keep and retain all of the original patinas. So, if you buy it and shine it, it may look beautiful...but just please don't tell me about it!

Additional Antique Hardware

I have other bronze antique door hardware that is not listed on my site, including many figural knobs, hex & octagon knobs, complete sets, knobs in pairs, push plates, pocket pulls, sash locks, keyhole escutcheons, and some items from the R&E Japanese collection.
