This beautiful Aesthetic Movement hardware on a pocket door in the Hench House provides a great example of how fine details can contribute to the period character of a house. Preserving or returning appropriate period hardware is important when restoring a house. This includes using slot-head screws for hardware dating before World War II.
The Hench House in York, PA was rescued from pending demolition and restored a decade ago. It is one of 13 featured houses photographed by noted architectural photographer David Clough and presented between the how-to chapters in Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners, and is showcased on the cover!
