Vintage Door Hardware

October 10, 2018

Our very first home was a charming 1923 colonial with tons of character. It had mahogany woodwork throughout, custom built-ins, leaded glass windows, and crystal knobs on all of the doors. We sold that house 15 years ago and I still dream about it today. I’ve missed the character and charm in our recent newer homes. When building our forever home, our goal was to bring that character and charm back. Of course, crystal door knobs were on the top of the list.


I was thrilled to find a company that creates reproduction door hardware in the same style and quality that those 1920’s homes had. The company is called Nostalgic Warehouse. Founded in 1980 by an antique store owner, Nostalgic Warehouse™ has grown from a modest proprietorship to a flourishing company. You can find their products all over the US and in several online stores.



We chose a very similar style of door hardware that was in our first home. It’s called the New York Long Plate with Waldorf Crystal Knob (oil rubbed bronze). Isn’t it lovely?



We installed them on every door in the house.



You can choose from privacy, passage, or dummy style. (Details on their site).




They’re simply a work of art.



They are the jewelry for our home.



You can find Nostalgic Warehouse vintage style door hardware on their website here. In my opinion, it’s a must in every home! I am on a mission to bring back charm and character to all new homes! Who’s with me?

    Those are beautiful. I bought some when I remodeled from Restoration Hardware. I love the black back plate. I also love your floors.

    The house I grew up in in Philadelphia had the most beautiful crystal door knobs. We, too, have a new construction home and it definitely lacks the character we love. Slowly we’ve made changes and added different features to give it that classic and timeless look every home deserves.

    Omg such a great idea! We just purchased our home last year and it was built in the early 1920s. The living room has the custom built ins, beams, and vintage doors with the glass knobs. We are turning the basement into our master bedroom and we were trying to find a way to tie in the vintage style of the house into the newly remodeled basement. These knobs will be perfect! Thanks for the idea ?

    Hi, I was just curious if the door hinges are the same finish as the plate and knob casing?
