Elements

The tools we work with

Architectural Antiques, a browser’s paradise, a place to get lost among rare artifacts and amazing finds, in a continually developing showroom. It is a place of elements, big and small, where you can find a 16' art deco stained glass window or a simple antique doorknob.

Here is what you can find at Architectural Antiques

Light Fixtures

We house over 3,000 antique lights, from the pre-electric gas lighting to simple 1930’s porcelain bathroom wall sconces and large ballroom-style chandeliers. Here, you will find all of your lighting needs fulfilled. We also specialize in turn-of-the-century art glass shades.

House Jewelry and Plumbing

Featuring one the most comprehensive collection anywhere. Victorian keyholes, bronze entry sets, complete sets of door and cabinet hardware, Ornate pedestal sinks, china & claw foot bathtubs, completes bath sets, all the finishing pieces and house jewelry available to complete any restoration.

Woodwork

An entire store dedicated to antique wood elements. Doors & woodwork from primitive to elaborate spoon carving, mantles, built-in buffets, beveled glass entryways. Cherry, oak, walnut and fir room dividers, stairways, newels, cabinetry and vintage bars to fit any style of home or office.

Stone & Terra Cotta and Iron & Metalwork

Stone, wrought iron, terra-cotta & metalwork are some of the most unique architectural artifacts you will find, from a time when pride in craftsmanship was an art. These materials exemplify superior products that historically changed the way buildings are constructed, ornamented and created.

Doors and Entries

Whether interior or exterior, doors are always the initial statement to any of your rooms and the entrance to your home. From the simple classic door - a flat panel from the 1920's to the ornate – a spoon carved from the 1880’s, doors are the first thing you see at an entrance and make that initial statement.

Stained and Prairie Glass

Vintage windows in all shapes and sizes, with one of the nation’s largest collections of Prairie School, Mission & Victorian stained glass styles in the country!

Ecclesiastical Artifacts

Architectural Antiques has the reputation for the finest collection of ecclesiastical artifacts recovered from churches across the country. Hand painted stained glass, pews, and ornate inlaid paneling altars with gold leaf, candelabras, prints & religious icons.

Museum Quality Pieces

Some pieces that come in are special. They have quality that is unique, unsurpassed and could only be created by an artisan whose thought and care will live on for centuries.
