Although there are a number of glass knob manufacturers that have come out with several replicas of the Victorian glass door knobs, they haven`t been able to match the quality, precision, and detail of antique glass knobs. Although brass, chrome, and steel knobs look good on doors they tend to lose their sheen and color due to the weather conditions. Moreover the constant touch of sweaty or wet hands on these door knobs can make them look drab. Antique glass door knobs are durable and are prone to different weather conditions.
Interior door knobs are available in four primary styles; privacy, passage, double dummy and single dummy. Privacy and passage knobs turn and operate a latch mechanism - the difference is privacy style knobs have a push pin lock (these are generally used on bathrooms or bedrooms). Single dummy and double dummy knobs do not turn or operate a latch mechanism - a single dummy knob is one knob on the exterior side of the door while a double dummy is a knob on either side of one door. Note: Most double dummy knobs cannot be used on two separate doors.
Door knobs serve multiple purposes, as well as opening and closing doors they also have an aesthetic value which can really make all the different to the look of you doors, which in turn reflects upon the look of your home. There are actually far more varieties of door handles than most people realise, yet despite this fact the majority of us don`t even give them a passing thought.

This article is going to try and teach you a little bit about several of the most common types of door handles and provide you with a little insight about their unique characteristics.
