I just totally stumbled on this. Sometimes you have to randomly click page 9 on a google search to get to the good stuff. Check out Stan the Old Hardware Man. He sells discontinued hardware. These cabinet pulls are pretty sweet– the kind of stuff I only see on enameled kitchen pieces being thrown out on mid-western sidewalks.

I’m gonna need at least a million bucks and a year off to bring this elegant, old lady back to life.

That tin flour drum on the left there is the most austere and beautiful pieces of early 20th century utilitarian graphic design I have seen in a while. I’m guessing 1930s. Shoulda checked the tag. Shoulda bought it!!
