Crystal door knobs are considered vintage now, but still maintain a timeless appeal that many adore. Let Direct Door Hardware be your one-stop-shop for these door knobs and many others!

During the early 1900s, metals like bronze, iron, and brass were crucial for the war effort. Aircrafts, weaponry, tanks, and more naturally took priority during WWII, so home hardware manufacturers were forced to get creative. It was around 1917 that crystal and cut glass became trendy. These materials were cut to resemble precious stones like diamonds and other jewels. Homeowners fell in love with the bright, striking styles and colors of these new door knobs.
Though they no longer hold the same popularity as they did during the 1920s, crystal door knobs are still found in homes across the nation. Many homeowners love the nostalgic and antiqued beauty of crystal, and when tastefully installed, they can add a lot of personality to any room. As antiquing has grown in popularity over the years, restorers are bringing old crystal and glass door knobs from yesteryear back to life.
Depending on the quality of the materials, crystal door knobs can range anywhere from $50 and upwards of $200. When choosing a crystal door knob, you'll find that those built without backing plates are often cheaper.
