Welcome to Wooden Nickel Antiques. We have been in
business in Cincinnati, Ohio since 1976, starting out in architectural
antiques. We still buy and sell antique back bars, antique
fireplace mantels, antique stained glass, and
antique chandeliers. Over the years we have expanded our
inventory and experience into antique furniture, decorative
arts and fine arts. We also offer complete auction
and appraisal services along with estate liquidations.

30' Art Deco Front And Back Bar
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
Wooden 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 business.
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.
Most 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.
You can now see the results of our team effort at the new location
of the Boca restaurant on 6th street in downtown Cincinnati.
Truly the centerpiece in the entire restaurant!

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
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 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,
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.
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.
