Show and Tell Friday: Glass Doorknob



The old (100 years, give or take a few) house we're renting has been well-kept, and it's full of these old glass doorknobs. On many of the doors, the original doorknobs are still in place with a conventional modern doorknob installed underneath. However, on the closets, new doorknobs have not been added. Isn't it pretty?

I love glass doorknobs.

I've been looking for a pair and they don't even have to work. All I want to use them for is for handles to pull open my closet door.

WoW! How cool is that!?
We looked into buying some last year (antique stores) and found that they were way out of our price range. Even the new ones, that look of that era were priced too high.
Thanks for sharing!

Older homes have such character that is not put into newer homes. My grandparents house had some glass doorknobs.

It is. Simple things we have now will on day have that beauty we will then mess.

It is pretty! I remember an old house we lived in once having them. I was younger then and didn't realize the beauty of them. Now I wish I had some in my house!

We BUY glass doorknobs........and I thought I was the only person that took pictures of doorknobs.

I can't believe you got 14 or so comments on a door knob that doesn't work. Mind boggling.

Charity Grace said...

It might not work, but at least it's pretty! :)

Christina said...

I agree, Charity... It may not work, but it's beautiful.
You ought to put a picture of the 'potty' on and see how many comments ya get! Just kidding!!!

Such a picture would probably get comments if it was used as a planter for flowers, Christina...OK, I'm just kidding too!!!
