Product Image Gallery:
This is a classic antique Schoolhouse shade, a popular choice for schools and commercial buildings from 1900 -1940. These simple, utilitarian shades were popular because of their clean lines and effective light diffusion. Mass produced beginning around the turn of the 20th-century, these ubiquitous shades became a staple in restaurants and homes after being decommissioned from commercial buildings. They are now a popular choice for kitchens and bathrooms in both residential and commercial buildings. This shade is made from white opal glass, a translucent or opaque glass that is prepared by adding impurities (as fluorine compounds) used especially for ornamental pressed glass and for diffusing light without serious loss of lighting efficiency. This is not a new shade, it is an antique shade salvaged from an old building.

Excellent product & customer service

Despite being backordered, I received my knobs with a fairly quick turnaround. They are heavy and well-made. I'm very happy with these in our kitchen!

Great find

Most catalogs & stores sell wood knobs of cherry, oak, maple, & sometimes pine. Solid, unfinished walnut is hard to find. Historic Houseparts sells these. They are well made, no defects, & come with screws. Company service is excellent, delivery prompt, exactly as advertised. Highly recommended.

Add a little splash of blue!

Sorry – took forever to find a window to get this installed – but I finally did – AND LOVE the results! I just love blue glass – so this hardware was such fun to find – thanks for offering it! You offered unique, quality made products - and you delivered! Great quality, great looks, great price! Installation was quick and easy!

Outstanding!

Solidly built, charming and wonderful! We test-purchased one set for our craftsman-Victorian home and it matched the 117- year-old feel perfectly! Can't wait for more to become available to that we can finish the other 14 doors :D

Beautiful piece with historic flair

I absolutely love this addition to my home. I own a home built in 1905 and this was the perfect piece to give it that extra character it needed. People are fascinated every time they come over and end up ringing it over and over again!

Transom locks and chains

My wife and I are building a 1930s craftsman style house, with transom Windows over all the the main doors and interior openings. The transom locks and Chains purchased from Historic House Parts look awesome and period correct . Customer service couldn't have been better!! Great job.

Arts and Crafts Numbers

It has been a challenge to find house numbers in an Arts and Crafts Style that actually look like it was original to the time period. These numbers hit the nail on the head. I get nervous about buying things online and hope that they look good and these house numbers did not disappoint. I love the finish on them as well. I would purchase from Historic House Parts again!

Exactly what we needed

We had acquired 2 original 1930s dressers which had Bakelite handles that were hopelessly worn out beyond repair. We needed a replacement that would not only fit the style but also the color. These worked perfectly in all respects. The pieces look beautiful and the handles honored the 30s Art Deco style. They are also good quality and well made.
