Old Hardware

Just a quick photo of a very cool door hardware set I inherited from my uncle. He was a saver of old things. He was also responsible for closing down a number of the old family farms when my relatives passed away over the years. So, I suspect this door set came from one of the old German farm houses built by one of my relatives.

The practical part of me thinks the knobs would look very cute mounted on a board and used as coat hangers. The historical side of me has been telling me that it would be a shame to pull apart perfectly good hardware.

Maybe I can work the intact set into some furniture (kitchen cabinet or armoire) somewhere down the line.
