Question
i have an antique wardrobe that used to have 2 metal sliders for hanging clothes in the top. they were removed when the item was apparently modified for another use. where can i find these sliders to restore it to its original purpose?

this is the style that slides out.  there are modern rigs that will work as pull outs as well

but there are no companies I have found where these can be bought.  the other configuration is the hooks.
