    Welcome to the Forums.

    That could be a very difficult one. You might fluke somebody who has similar or the same hardware lying around, but otherwise you should try the specialists in old hardware.

    Toowoomba Colonial Fittings are, unsurprisingly, in Toowoomba. Brian and Pixie are very helpful. I would suggest you contact them by phone in the first instance and then send an email with pix of the cabinet knobs you have to see if they have the same.

    Alternatively you may have a similar shop near you.

    They were made by Turner; similar New Old Stock items come up on Ebay fairly regularly like THESE. If you canít get identical ones at least these ones are of the same period.

    Hello Julie,

    Welcome to the forum!

    You may want to try Graeme Browne Antiques. They have an extensive "antique" hardware catalogue accessible on their website:

    Welcome to the forum Julie. When this rain stops & I get into town, I'll have a look in the antique shops in Macksville to see if they have anything.
