Shopping for Vintage Hardware

doorknobs
One of the remaining tasks in our renovation is to put on all the old doorknobs we have bought on eBay over the past year. Getting them to fit the existing door plates is proving tricky so we’re probably going to have to visit Moon River Chattel this weekend to find ones that work. For those interested in this kind of stuff, the Personal Shopper column in yesterday’s House & Garden section of The Times took a look at vintage hardware and, more importantly, cited some good sources. The slideshow is quite enjoyable.
