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.
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!
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.
This worked perfectly. Exactly as it should have. I was so shocked to find it online and so inexpensive. I had looked at antique dealers who wanted $20 or more for an old rusty one and I got it here for less than $4. Thank you so much!
We had acquired 2 original 1930s dressers which had Bakelite handles that were hopelessly worn out beyond repair. We needed a replacement that would not only fit the style but also the color. These worked perfectly in all respects. The pieces look beautiful and the handles honored the 30s Art Deco style. They are also good quality and well made.
