Wooden Nickel Antiques

Supplier of antiques and architectural salvage, including antique back bars, stained glass, antique furniture, lighting and restored mantels.

Antique Saloon Back Bars

Wooden Nickel's top-selling item is antique saloon back bars. They were produced in many sizes and "models". We take pride in restoring and/or remodeling these beauties back to their original condition. Most of the bars at the store are from the late 1800's to the early 1900's, and over time we have also had some really flashy Art Deco bars come through.

Wooden Nickel buys, sells and brokers these antique back and front bars all over the United States. Believe it or not, these back bars were originally made to be modular for easy shipping. The same is true today. Contact us for additional information about buying or selling antique bars or bar decor.

Antique Furniture

Antique furniture at Wooden Nickel is a constant turnover. We specialize in vintage furniture from the 19th and early 20th century. We carry large American, Victorian, Renaissance, Gothic, Arts and Crafts pieces such as sideboards, bookcases, hall trees, tables, armoires and the like. There are also beautifully carved European pieces in inventory most of the time. We buy and sell such makers as Mitchell and Rammelsberg, Horner, Wooten, to name a few.

Architectural Salvage

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 & church buildings for salvage, but that type of merchandise quickly sells.

If you have a building you would like to talk to us about getting a bid on, contact us at (513) 241-2985. Our experienced staff is fully insured and professional. There are many more factors and considerations involved in a salvage contract bid other than the price offered. Wooden Nickel Antiques has the experience of these considerations a property owner may not be aware of. For more information on  historic preservation/specialized deconstruction projects, contact us for feasibility studies, salvage contracts, and bid proposals. We will be happy to provide a list of references upon request.
