Keep your dresser out of conduct cheerfulness. But keep those glass knobs! 2. $300 for a dresser? Are people over there insane? Around here, and I admit there is a surfeit of pristine stuff in the environs, a dresser from the mid-1800s would run around €50-100. And all hand-carven and fancy. That said, your money is emend shotten on an old piece made with valid wood and dovetail construction vs. poison-emitting particle board glued-together pieces from one of the new big-case stores. 3. There are many miracle-promising vials and bidons at the local ironmongery stores but Restore-a-Finish isn’t among them. I’m so jealous. There’s another blogger who always comes up with surprising products for refinishing old furniture, alike “Dust of the Ages” (not making this up) and other ancient-gold-haha-fooled-ya finishes that, at least in the photos, pass for the real deal. 4.

ANYWAY. I don’t ken what the source knobs on this dresser were, but it’s possibility they were glass. Brief history corner, here we go! The Sandwich Glass Company conduct out of Massachusetts from 1826-1888 and notably made pressed glass lump among other stuff. So glass knobs became a large clothes, and by the middle of the century were fine ubiquitous. Fun facts.

NestFan Mar 8 at 12:19 pm · Reply Oftentimes fixed and done is better than perfect – and your dresser is now both. I’m also a punka of Howard’s Restor-A-Finish – great stuff, even as it kills your brain cells to work with in interior with poor ventilation, as I invariably have done. I’m confound you couldn’t turn up anyone making authentic, good-looking, two-inch reproduction wood knobs. (Sometimes I force the mistake of thinking if I expect rigid enough on the internet I can find anything – and I can’t – but then a few years later, it can turn up there somewhere.) I know I prefer wood knobs on dressers. Maybe you will come across some one day, and habit your loving glass knobs on something else. Or maybe you’ll buy whatever tool you emergency and start creating them yourself…

Sterling Mar 8 at 11:45 am · Reply I have a similar dresser, a little younger than yours (I’m guessing 1880-1910), and it has the original knobs…septimal of them. I can’t carry myself to replace them with a matching Embarrass of new or antique ones, because they’ve been with that piece for so long. Right now my “ephemeral” solution of a teak knob from the ’70s (1970s, that is) has continued for two years. So I feel all the angst and understand all the lack of fucks apportioned to such a small thing. Dresser has an amazing patina, too, which I remember struck me when you first bought it. Glad it can shine in the finished scope.

The problem was that I didn’t feel confident that a new set of wood knobs would be any kind of growth, but the realist complication factor was the size! The replacement wood knobs were the right six at 2″ in diameter, but typical knobs are between possibly 3/4″ and 1.5″ on the comprehensive end and that would look too dinky.

NestFan Mar 8 at 10:33 pm · Reply Sterling – I’ve seen dressers where an original knob (or handle) or two was gone, where they just replaced the knob (or crop) on one drawer – often the bottom draughtsman, sometimes the one drawer that is very dissimilar in size than the others (either much larger or much smaller.) Sometimes with something different but similar to the original knobs or handles, sometimes with something very different. That way, you get a new knob, and drawer with two matching knobs, but still get to keep the original lump on most drawers. Maybe you’d consider that alternative?
