Wooden Nickel Antiques spent months at our store
restoring, rewiring, and reassembling this fantastic antique French chandelier
(circa 1900-1905). It is 14 feet high and 8 feet in diameter! The thousands of
crystals were carefully washed and restrung by our talented craftsmen (and women).
Nickel located this magnificent chandelier on behalf of the owners of Boca restaurant.
But it is not the first time we have handled this beauty. About 20 years ago,
we transported it from an Atlanta auction house to Cincinnati for another local
Before it came to the Atlanta auction, it was said to have come
from a prominent Florida estate. How or when it came to the U.S. no one knows.
recently, it spent years completely disassembled and stored in a friend's warehouse.
This is the location where we acquired this fabulous chandelier for the owners
of Boca restaurant.
Here you can see photos of the Wooden Nickel staff
on site for the final installation.

effort at the new location of the Boca restaurant on 6th street in downtown Cincinnati.

Antique Back Bars
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, 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.
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
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.
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.
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.
have been in the "green industry" for over 30 years! We still do architectural

you with any questions about buying, selling or shipping arrangements.
