Knobs, Pulls and Knobs

Featured image above: This lock is made by Frank Koralewski in 1911, and is covered with gold, silver and bronze

When strolling through old European towns, I love to look at antique and renaissance hardware, especially handles, knobs and pulls on old doors. There is always a story and rich history behind them

These doorhandles go back hundreds of years, some to the Middle ages. (some pictures I took while strolling through Passau)

This old door and lock below from 1585 has a historic significance. It is in the Townhall of Dettelbach, where my paternal grandfather served as a Mayor in 1950’s.
