Antique Furniture
Our general antique furniture inventory, mostly from the 19th and early 20th century, can include high style American Victorian, Renaissance, Rococo, Gothic, and beautifully carved European pieces as well as Arts and Crafts, vintage, industrial items. Inventory includes antique sideboards, beds, bookcases, consoles, dining tables, library tables, desks, china cabinets, hall trees, and vintage accessories for the home. We buy and sell such makers as Mitchell and Rammelsberg, Horner, Wooten, and others.

Antique Back Bars
Wooden Nickel is THE place to shop for antique back bars as well as antique style pub bars. We buy and sell antique commercial saloon bars, such as Brunswick. We also fabricate one of a kind custom bars in our own shop. There are antique back bars and front bars in stock almost all the time at Wooden Nickel.

Antique Stained Glass
Antique stained glass, beveled glass windows and doors are always in stock. We also custom design fancy stained glass windows, doors, entryways, and ceilings. From a simple transom window to large and elaborate landing window sets, all have been here at one time or another. Please feel free to check our current inventory of antique stained and beveled glass or contact us for custom work.

Antique Chandeliers
Antique chandeliers from the simple to sublime are a favorite category for us. All styles qualify as "jewelry for your house"! We love them all: gas and electric chandeliers in many styles, Victorian, Art Nouveau, Rococo, Arts and Crafts, funky vintage and industrial lights in brass, bronze, iron, alabaster or crystal.

Antique Mantels
Antique Mantels
at Wooden Nickel are usually restored and ready to install. When possible, the original finish is left intact. We buy and sell mantels in walnut, oak, cherry, mahogany, and marble.

Architectural salvage is our very first love. We started out over a quarter of a century ago, salvaging all sorts of fabulous items from buildings in the 1800's era. Those days were good to us, but due to the rehabbing boom, the items we salvage are not as readily available. We still get large buildings for salvage, but that type of merchandise quickly sells.

Decorative Arts
We also have a fine appreciation for antique and vintage decorative arts. In this category, you will find antique oil paintings, 19th century marble statues, brass and bronze andirons, Cincinnati Art carved pieces, antique clocks, lamps, music boxes, antique advertising items, antique pool tables, art nouveau statues, art tiles, and much more.

Antique garden
items have become quite rare. We shop for the unique and are particularly fond of large scale pieces, such as antique garden statues. The vast majority of garden-related items at Wooden Nickel are of new manufacture.

We have been in the "green industry" for over 30 years! We still do architectural salvage of large buildings in a regional area. For more information on Historic Preservation/specialized deconstruction projects contact us for feasibility studies, salvage contracts and bid proposals.

We are always happy to assist you with any questions about buying, selling or shipping arrangements.
