Nov 28, 2010: Glass Doorknob

A hundred years ago glass doorknobs were pretty common.
Some were fancy crystal, and some were fancy cut glass, but most were cast or molded glass, sometimes in colors.
I have some glass knobs that are a light lavender, not made that way, but because ultraviolet light would affect old clear glass that way over time.

But you ain't seen no knob, like this knob, anywhere near... uh, anywhere.



Round, smooth, and a reflection of the room.

Close.

The reflection is of the room on the other side of the door, great for bathrooms.
I'm not sure if it works both ways, or not, but placement would be a challenge either way.

Can you image trying to open a glass knob with wet hands?

Why, yes. Yes I can. Probably slippery.

Since this is basically an optical device, you would feel the urge to keep the knobs clean. Maybe a good thing, since knobs are great for spreading germs.

Knobs should really be polished on a regular basis.
They are extremely useful, especially when they are clean.

Sundae Girl, I know what you mean. I've been trying to find someone to polish my knob for me, but usually just have to polish it myself.

Totally nifty. I love it. I love all things lens-related.
