The truth is, I think, wheels just became a stylistic item with no real function other than to emulate earlier period styles.

Then Art Deco added wheels in some cases as purely style innovations for they were not emulating anybody!

The problem with these stylistic devices is that they often become a problem in their own right.

Sooner or later, if a piece has wheels on it, someone is going to try to roll it across the carpet in order to clean around or behind it and then the problem starts.

These vintage locks are in excellent condition and have been cleaned and oiled to operate perfectly.

The faceplates are steel with worn brass plating and typical minor scratches and little dings.Some are original vintage keys, some are reproductions.We find them here and there, flea markets and yard sales, so the list changes when we sell a key or when we find a new one.” A clue of sorts can be found in the generic name of many early 20th century items, those that are known as “Colonial Revival.” These pieces are modern replays of generally 18th century North American furniture originals, which in their own right often owe their existence to earlier European styles, but that’s another story.In the 18th century, carpet and other floor coverings were in much less general use than in the 20th century and as such, floor care did not consist of carpet sweeping so much as the mopping of wooden or stone floors.This beautiful Hoosier Cabinet is a reproduction of an original that was popular in the early 1900's.
