Vintage Antique Reproduction Ice Box Hardware


Ices Boxes became available as early as 1803. The quality of your icebox was an indicator of your economic status, from practical and plain to furniture quality with ornate hardware. An ice box was a common appliance in homes before technology allowed electric refrigerators in homes. Ice boxes were usually made from wood, many were admirable pieces of furniture, with hollow walls made from tin or zinc and lined with insulating materials like, sawdust, cork, and straw. A large block of ice was held in the ice box on a tray and cold air circulated down to the lower storage areas cooling the food.

Vintage Antique Reproduction Pocket Door Hardware

Vintage Hardware & Lighting manufactures pocket door hardware for single pocket doors or double pocket doors. Look for  Victorian , Windsor , Roanoke , Arts & Crafts , and plain designs to suit every style decor. We have reproduced many historically significant pieces for your accurate restoration projects, including R&E and Eastlake pocket door handles.

Designed more than one hundred years ago as space savers, pocket doors became very popular in the Victorian style homes of the late eighteen and early nineteen hundreds. Used primarily as entrances to stately libraries, elaborate dining areas, or even a basic sitting room. Most guests in homes in that era never made it past the first parlor, maybe even lucky enough to reach the second parlor. People were very private and did not want their affairs easily overheard.These room dividers continued to increase in popularity until seemingly dropping completely from the architects planning boards.

Much speculation surrounds the disappearance of the pocket door at that time, there are several factors involved. Most of the hardware manufactures producing pocket door hardware went out of business, and most likely the end of pocket door use came down to the quality of hardware available. Home owners were tired of tired of creaking, jamming in the walls, and doors coming off the tracks, as their home hardware aged. We reproduce only the best antique pocket door hardware available in the last 100 years. 

The Arts & Crafts Movement was the artisans' response to the Industrial Revolution. They encouraged customers to buy handmade goods, produced using local materials. Also known as Craftsman style, Gustav Stickley and the company that bore his name are credited for putting Arts & Crafts into the American culture.

These lost wax cast Arts and Crafts pocket door handles are originally circa 1920, available with or without a keyhole. Solid brass, copper coated and darkened.

PF Corbin was a high end manufacturer during the Victorian era. His name assured quality, so as with many fine products, he had many imitators. One of his most popular and highly detailed patterns was "Roanoke ". Our reproduction is taken from a quality original antique.

This is the small Roanoke pocket door handle with a keyhole. If you are thinking outside the box, a small handle like this works well on sliding door furniture, such as a credenza, that you would like to lock. We also offer this Roanoke pocket door handle without a keyhole .

The Roanoke pattern was so popular that it had its imitators. While these plates are very pretty, and matching to Roanoke, they were not made by Corbin but by a competitor. Competitors walked a fine line to not infringe on Corbin's design patent. At first glance, who could tell? And across the room from each other – impossible.
Victorians could use the high end products in public parlors and dining rooms, and the less costly hardware in their private rooms.

We made these imitation Roanoke pocket door handles because they were complementary and were larger pocket door plates. The imitation Roanoke pocket door handle with out a keyhole could also be used as a large sash lift. Choose from solid un-lacquered brass, or one of our custom applied finishes.

Eastlake was a British architect and furniture designer. Trained by the architect Philip Hardwick, he popularized William Morris's notions of decorative arts in the Arts and Crafts style, becoming one of the principal exponents of the revived "Early English" or "Modern Gothic Style" popular in Victorian architecture. Eastlake was a supporter of the Arts & Crafts Movement, believing in local craftsmanship and materials. His shallow, simple lines of decoration were intended to make cleaning easier. These Solid lost wax cast brass Eastlake pocket door handles match our eastlake style hardware , and add a lovely detail to your doors. These pocket door handles are marvelous quality, with fine detail that comes from a lovely antique original. Available with or with out keyholes.

Reading Hardware Company introduced a popular pattern circa 1885, called Windsor . It is very attractive antique home hardware , and many items were made to match.

R & E stands for Russell & Erwin . Before 1870, American door hardware was rather mundane. Our line of R&E hardware is carefully reproduced by 14 skilled bronze and jewelry craftsmen. These beautiful items are Lost Wax cast in Silicon Bronze, specially treated to resemble old patina hardware, then hand waxed. These reproductions are so fine they have fooled historical societies, so we protect genuine antiques by marking ours with an "A". Every item here is taken from an original antique sample, complete in every detail.

This gorgeous R & E pocket door plate , has often been claimed to be the most outstanding pocket
door handle that have ever been produced.


These simple Fine, heavily wrought, not stamped, recessed plain pocket door handles. Although the Victorians would use fancy handles in the rooms that the public visited, like the parlor and dining room, this would have been used in the private rooms.

Antique Reproduction Furniture Brass Toe Caps and Casters

Looking for the replacement brass casters or caster cups without wheels for that special piece of furniture that you just can’t seem to find anywhere else?

Vintage Hardware Lighting  recasts most of the popular styles and sizes of chair caster and chair terminal , table leg caster and table leg terminal , and even a rubber wheel tea trolley caster . Our wheel casters include brass, porcelain, and wooden wheel casters .

Our selection of casters and toe caps come in a solid brass that is also offered in a few different finishes, antique brass finish, oil rubbed bronze finish, and pewter finish, some available in nickel plated brass.
Many of our casters will snap into the old sleeves left in old furniture.

These solid brass furniture toe caps protect your furniture from damage. They come in a selection of different sizes, and since they are sand cast there are "slight" variations from each casting. Casting creates a thicker metal cup as opposed to stamped brass.
  Moving furniture on carpet requires a hard wheel in order to smoothly roll; our porcelain casters and brass casters  work great and allow your furniture to glide across the floor for easy moving.

Antique Casters Weren't really made for "Big" moves; they were mainly for moving a few feet here and there for cleaning and to hold wooden legs up off the floor to keep them from rotting when water was left after mopping. Our porcelain and brass casters work well on wood floors, but again are not meant for frequent moves.
Both of our wooden wheel casters (C-4  & C-4A ) are identical to most used circa 1900. Wooded wheel casters weren't big in
America during that time, and were rarely seen on furniture aside from British imports. They were mainly used in Europe. These wooden wheel casters come complete with steel sleeve but many times these  casters will snap into the old sleeves still in old furniture.

Pictured is our popular rubber wheel caster , made for small table and tea trolleys, because the size of the wheel is so large, it smoothly glides over the floor. With soft rubber wheels there's no worry about scratching your fine hard wood floors.

vintage Hardware also reproduces brass toe caps and  brass cup casters , finer  casters cannot be found. Carefully sand cast with precision cores and finished through 5 processes. Internal measurements for the toe cap casters can very slightly due to the nature of sand casting. Solid, high polish brass finish or an antique finish to blend with older existing hardware.

Our Cup Casters  are available in round and square fittings and come in different sizes. These style casters are useful when it comes to installation.   Just pop them on with out the worry of drilling out holes or damaging or cracking the legs.

Big and beautiful, this large reproduction claw toe cap uses a 3" solid GLASS ball–unlike  cheap copies elsewhere that use a plastic ball. Glass ball has bubbles and swirls because it is hand poured just like the antique ones. Made for decoration, this toe cap is grand and really puts that extra detail into any piece of furniture.

This small antique reproduction claw toe cup , with real glass ball insert, tapered leg terminal  is available in two sizes and adorned with a mythological face, great for table legs and side tables. Like most of our brass antique reproduction hardware, the smaller claw toe cap can be ordered in an antique brass finish to blend with older existing furniture hardware
