Vintage shopping, giving the house a little character

Been doing a little vintage shopping for the house.  This is an early 1900's mechanical doorbell.  It's probably one of the items I'm most excited about installing.  The turn key goes through the door with the bell mounted on the inside.  I'm going to be going out and ringing my own doorbell like a crazy person all the time.

These are glass telegraph insulators from around 1907.  Planning on turning them into light sconces for the hallway.
