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.

What People Are Saying
Bathroom Door Pulls

For the French doors on our new bathroom, it was a challenge to find the right door knobs. We wanted a deep blue to match a Turkish ornament in the floor. These knobs were just the right color. As it turned out, using them as door pulls was the right idea, and we love them!
Great, affordable

I was having trouble sourcing lifts that were good quality, and matched with all of the other hardware in the kitchen. These fit the bill, and were less than half what I have seen elsewhere. They are solid, nicely weighted. Worth knowing that they are cast rather than stamped, so holes can be slightly different from one to another -- means that you have to be careful with measuring and leveling. But the upside is a truly historic and great-looking lift.

We are renovating our house in Redondo Beach, a 100 year old beach bungalow that was stuccoed. We re-faced the exterior to shingles (previously clapboard) and we are keeping the plastered walls and putting your hinges on all of the interior doors. Thanks!
Perfect addition to any home

I got this piece to go along with our turn that we also purchased and this is absolutely beautiful. Easy install and a wonderful, historically accurate addition to my home.

So glad to learn about these awesome little tools to help save my walls in my 100 year old house! My large framed art hangs solidly on my walls without dinging them up or leaving nasty holes. What's more, it beats pounding several holes in the walls, should I change my mind about where I want things hung. Thanks!
Antique drop pull handle

Excellent choices, quality products, service, and quick delivery. Matched our Eastlake drop basin perfectly.

Purchased to replace old yellowing cardboard candelabra covers - thought I wanted/needed a new chandelier until these beautiful covers revived it! People even think I purchased a new fixture!! Would highly recommend - price and shipping could not be beat! Would definitely do business again!! Thanks!!
Worked like a charm!

We recently experienced a very large chip in our tub. It had started to rust and that made us very unhappy. Porcafix was very easy to use and the tub looks great!
