There are people who collect all sorts of thing. From dolls to bottle caps there is a collection for nearly every personality. Some people even get all worked up over the old knobs on doors and have started collections out of antique door knobs. Were not sure how this collection happened. Maybe is started when an old door was going to be thrown out and there was a nostalgic moment and the knob was kept as a memory. Then that knob called out for more knobs and a collecting frenzy was underway. No matter the reason for them antique door knob collections are very popular and can be very expensive.
These glass knobs are very difficult to get and hence people who want to adorn their doors with these knobs are willing to shell out big money. Antique glass door knobs look grand on doors and create a magnificent effect at night with supplemented lighting above the door. Although there are a number of glass knob manufacturers that have come out with several replicas of the Victorian glass door knobs they havent 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.
As time went on styles of knobs came and went and it was only in more modern times that the door knobs we used seemed to become a bit more boring and just looked at as things that are meant to open a door. Its possible the boring state of todays door knobs is what caused many hardware manufacturers to go back in time and start lines of pieces that are reproductions of those fascinating antique door knobs. Those reproductions have become a major income for those companies as people continually look for new ways to dress up their home.
Once done you will now see the inside of the wooden door and the part of the doorknob that goes through it. Push the opening and closing mechanism on the front of the door and at the same time pull the remaining piece of the door knob from the outside it will slide out easily leaving a hole that goes through the door. Once this is done take the opening and closing mechanism and slide it out the front of the door too. Now you have to reverse the process place the opening and closing mechanism through the front of the door make sure the flat side of the mechanism looks to the side to which the door opens.
