EM1097 Old Wood Knobs – Musical Instrument? Altered Art!

Old Wood Knobs – Musical Instrument? Altered Art!

Haven’t any idea what these old knobs are from but suspect they might have been on some kind of musical instrument. Much of the writing is gone and they have old paint on them as well.

This is a fabulous piece of hardware from the Victorian era but I’m sad to say I haven’t the faintest idea what it is!

When there is a salvage operation in an old building some interesting items can be found in addition to hardware!

Maybe the penny was... click picture for more info
EM1086 Old Antique Whatchamacallit

Old Antique Whatchamacallit

Sometimes I come across items that stump me as to their use and this is one of them. Made of thick cast iron the only thing I can think of is a gadget to lead a farm animal with a nose ring around.

EM1084 Old Brass Gloved Hand Door Knocker

Old Brass Gloved Hand Door Knocker

This door knocker came to me with hardware from 1905 but I honestly don’t know if it was made in that era. It could have been added to the house later so I’m not pricing it as a true antique. Has some age to it based on the patina but not as large as the really old knockers. Made of heavy cast... click picture for more info
