We have had a lot of this vintage hardware around our shop for about 30 years. We never really gave it much thought as being Vintage. But, it was old warehouse stock when I bought it, and now that I am old enough to be vintage myself, well .... I am seeing these pieces being sold on ebay for ridiculously high prices so figured it was about time to point out what we have here at ridiculously low prices. These items span a few Periods of style and some of it easily borders on 30 or 50 years old and includes old brands such as Continental Brass Company, Keeler Brass Company, and other defunct entities from our glorious hardware company past -- You know, when we used to make stuff here in the USA.
Despite its age, it looks as good as new, which is more than I can say for myself unfortunately.
