For the French doors on our new bathroom, it was a challenge to
find the right door knobs. We wanted a deep blue to match a
Turkish ornament in the floor. These knobs were just the right
color. As it turned out, using them as door pulls was the right
idea, and we love them!
We bought an Art Deco vanity table, that had ordinary round brown wooden knobs. We replaced those knobs with these Bakelite knobs. The look now catches our eyes and has upped the Wow factor of the piece in our bedroom.
We are renovating our house in Redondo Beach, a 100 year old beach bungalow that was stuccoed. We re-faced the exterior to shingles (previously clapboard) and we are keeping the plastered walls and putting your hinges on all of the interior doors. Thanks!
I absolutely love this addition to my home. I own a home built in
1905 and this was the perfect piece to give it that extra
character it needed. People are fascinated every time they come
over and end up ringing it over and over again!
Extremely pleased. We needed a narrow piece on the receptor
side because of modern doubled glazed windows, and this fit the
bill perfectly. Had to search a long time to find this piece and so
glad I found it here, at last. Looks absolutely gorgeous and
original in our Edwardian home. Highly recommend! Quality and
function is outstanding. Had questions about the item and got
prompt and thorough response; great customer service. Would
gladly order again.
Most catalogs & stores sell wood knobs of cherry, oak, maple, & sometimes pine. Solid, unfinished walnut is hard to find. Historic Houseparts sells these. They are well made, no defects, & come with screws. Company service is excellent, delivery prompt, exactly as advertised. Highly recommended.
