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.
Inspiration for Today
“Love is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch, but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same.
