This Week’s Theme: Door Knobs

Anything I find that even remotely resembles something Egyptian I automatically bump it up to the top of the list. In this case, however, I decided to make these beauties from Historic Home Hardware my grand finale for our week of door knobs. I love, love, love, love, LOVE this sun, flower, and columns pattern in these Egyptian-motif Antique  cast bronze doors knobs made around 1885 by Nashua Manufacturing.

Even the backs continue with a different, more obvious Egyptian pattern. According to Historic Home Hardware, during the Victorian era homeowners were enthralled by all things with an Egyptian, Persian or Chinese motif.
