Historic Door handles, Knobs, Pulls and Locks

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

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

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.
