A vintage knob is a great addition to any front door. It can take a plain, basic front door and turn it into something special. There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to selecting a vintage knob from shape to color. One of the most important choices that you can make is in the material of the knob. Certain knobs are better for high traffic doors while others are more fragile.
Here are some of the vintage knob materials that you can choose from whether you are looking for knobs from years ago or new knobs that are made in a vintage fashion:
Glass: Glass is one of the most popular materials for vintage doors. It is affordable and yet also incredibly stylish. When buying new or vintage glass knobs, you’ll want to inspect them for cracks or chips. Glass doors can also have bubbles, which are generally mistakes that the glassblower made. However, some buyers think that the bubbles add character.
Porcelain: Much like glass knobs, porcelain knobs often have cracks and chips. They can also become discolored and yellow over time. You should make sure to check porcelain knobs to make sure they are the right color, although they can be glazed if this is the case.
