Does anyone know where to get vintage/period house hardware in Paris?

Jump to last reply

We are redoing our old (1902 -- hey, that's old for the Pacific Northwest) house in Anacortes, WA, and thought it would be neat to get some of the attractive hardware we have seen on home/apartment entrances in France. In particular, I'd like a fancy period lighted door bell push/button, and house numbers. Do any of you know where I could start looking for such stuff?

In the States, we have businesses that specialize in that sort of thing. Restoration Hardware is one. http://www.restorationhardware.com/ Are there similar outfits in Paris, and what would I look for under in Pages Jaunes?

Last time I was in Paris I looked through BHV in Paris, which some one suggested, and they do have some enameled blue and white house numbers, but that is not what I want. I'm thinking brass or cast iron. I will also look through the flea market in Vanves next Saturday, but that will be like the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The French are restoring old homes all the time, and there must be a buck to be made in supplying the bits and pieces for doing so --- I just need help finding the right place to part with my bucks. Any suggestions?
