Victorian rim locks, Art Nouveau door knobs, sash window fasteners, antique wall brackets… if you’re working on a historical building you need to check Full Circle Architectural Antiques. This 40 year collection of salvaged period details shows how beautiful and durable household fittings can be. Most items are fully restored and ready to install.
Paul and Jane Wilkinson were part of the Eltham mud brick building movement in the 1970s and recycled materials for their own house. Salvaging became a passion and a lifelong business that now trades in antique prints and maps, heritage hardware and fittings, and traditional tessellated floor and wall tiles.
As they get closer to retirement, the Wilkinsons are digging through warehouse and personal collections to pass on favourite pieces. Items are photographed and documented on the Full Circle website so each beautifully preserved treasure can find a new home.

– Genuine brass door knockers, bell pulls and window hardware
