[Trade Catalogs:] Reproductions of Antique Fittings [and] Reproductions of Antique Fittings. Supplementary Catalog.


American antiques dealer Israel Sack, Inc. was founded in Boston in 1903 as a furniture repair business. As their antiques business thrived, they started to sell reproductions of antique fittings and hardware used to restore (or authentically reproduce) period furniture.

The catalogs illustrated metal drawer pulls, escutcheons, hinges, door locks, door knockers, ornaments, and castors; wooden finials and pendants; and iron hinges; lighting fixtures; carved wooden chair legs and furniture feet, mirror and clock pictures, and numerous patterns of wooden inlay.

Two price lists show the firm’s re-location in the 1930s from Boston to New York City. A “50% Discount” ink annotation suggest the effects of the Great Depression on their trade.
