Door Knob. Sunday , December 03rd , 2017 - 00:24:24 AM
The door knob is one of the most frequently used items in the home and can be used to make a dramatic difference in your decorating theme. Decorative door knobs are a great way to create a new and interesting focal point for your interior and exterior doors without needing to replace the actual door itself. Door knobs are available in a variety of materials and types so you can coordinate the doors throughout your entire house and create a new and beautiful theme.
Interior rooms are different from exterior ones in both purpose and facility. For example, exterior doors are exposed to the outside which makes it essential for them to be an attractive bright color to magnetize other`s focus. Again they are more often reached for by people from the outside. So, they need to have a proper security system to maintain safety measures of the house. This is why manufacturers design exterior door knobs differently. However, inside lever knobs are free from these concerns.
But the real money seems to be in the door knobs that were really from that time. Just as much as the other collectibles and antiques in old estates can get a pretty penny at auction, the antique door knobs in those homes are also commanding top dollar at estate sales and auctions. During World War II, many people pulled the brass doorknobs from their homes to help the government in their collections of brass to make war goods. Having one of these brass goodies today can fetch a pretty penny at an auction. How much would you pay for antique door knobs? How about $8,300 for just one knob? That`s the price that the `Doggie knob` fetched at an auction. The beautifully carved bronze knob with a pooch looking through the center was created in the late 1800s. There are believed to be only two of them in existence.
