Ruth Richmond door knobs and cabinet pulls — nice stash of New Old Stock

Some day soon, there will be no more boxes of never-sold stuff, now rediscovered, in hardware stores that closed in the 70s. Fortunately, that day is not today. Today, we have a bunch of Ruth Richmond door knobs and cabinet knobs — new old stock from a hardware store that closed in the 70s.

There are doorknob sets, in several designs.

In multiples. If I were a home builder, would … build a house with just six doors around these.

And put in just enough cabinetry for these cabinet pulls, too. Matchy matchy.

Not a lotta. But some. For someone maybe even, enough. Ruth Richmond would be pleased, I bet.

    My Grandma worked in the Weiser lock factory in Chicago assembling locks until she retired in 1970.

    I love Ruth Richmond knobs! I have a stash of them, but since I have perfectly adequate knobs on the (only three) interior doors in this cottage, and many more urgent projects to finish, I haven’t gotten around to replacing them yet.

    Has anyone ever seen an EXTERIOR acrylic knob by Ruth Richmond? I’m so tempted by the white acrylic ones, but I wonder if (aside from the locking part, which is taken care of by a deadbolt anyway) it could be a feasible choice?

    Are they already gone? I clicked on the link, but it said no results found. I REALLY want those door pulls and door knob.

          Yup, they were all on auction, and sold. See the Sold items of the seller to see them…
