Yes, our name is The Brass Knob, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a weakness for GLASS knobs, too. We’ve recently been selling a lot of them, so we know a lot of our customers feel the same way.
They make wonderful jewelry for your door:
And they make period decor look more authentic:
They can also enhance an already fresh, crisp style:
And you don’t even have to use them on a door, as you see them used to great effect on this chest that’s been converted into a vanity:
And as towel hooks—genius
Glass doorknobs were being sold as early as 1834, where there is a reference to them in the Boston Silver Glass Co. directory, and numerous patents for glass knob designs were filed in the mid-to-late 19th century.
We have many examples ranging from this period through the 1940s. They will make an instant first impression in your home, before anyone’s stepped inside the room! Stop by and take a look at our collections in person.
