Red, white and blue are easily recognized as the symbolic colors of our county, most visibly on our American flag. But did you know that each of those colors has special meaning? The color red represents hardiness and valor, white symbolizes purity, and blue indicates vigilance, perseverance and justice. In honor of Flag Day on June 14, we have pulled a red, white and blue sampling of our products for your traditional decorating styles.

First we present a ruby red glass inverted Thistle pattern serving platter measuring 12 inches in diameter, resting on a round pedestal approximately 1 1/2 inches above table surface. This ruby serving piece would enhance your Fourth of July table scape, but is also a year round treasure for serving at Christmas or Valentine’s Day.


For your restoration or traditional home style needs, we offer a white porcelain dummy door knob finished in brushed nickel Victorian plate. Single dummy glass door knobs consist of a knob on one side of the door. Double dummy styles consist of a knob on both sides of the door. As dummy knobs, these do not turn or operate a latch mechanism. This doorknob set is available in four additional finishes.


Lastly, our cobalt blue glass cabinet knobs are a beauty to behold. These sturdy knobs are individually made from the finest silica glass by professional glassworkers and are available in 2 sizes: 1 ½ inch diameter or 1 ¼ inch diameter.


Visit our website for additional findings in red, white and blue. Show your patriotism, or just find the right item for your home. We aim to please!

1 1/2 Inch Glass Knob

Crystal clear glass cabinet knobs are a wonderful way to add the beauty of glass to your kitchen, bathroom or bedroom without needing to introduce new colors or try to match the existing color schemes in the room. Glass cabinet and drawer hardware is a simple way to update the look of your cabinets or drawers without needing to refinish or repaint if the surfaces are still in good condition. Unlike metal hardware that can become dented or scratched over time, glass offers a timeless beauty that will be a subtle but elegant addition to your home.

Glass cabinet hardware is available in a variety of shapes and designs which can range from simple hexagonal designs to wonderful swirl patterns. Since knob construction can vary some types may offer a base in a variety of different finishes that can be coordinated to doorknob sets, faucets, hinges, etc. that are not being replaced. Popular finishes include Polished Brass, Antique Brass, Polished Chrome, Brushed Nickel and Oil Rubbed Bronze.

Installing new knobs on your cabinets and drawers is a simple process that typically takes only a few minutes. Knobs can either be designed with the bolt going through the knob from the front and attaching with a nut on the interior of the cabinet or they can be a rear mounting system where a bolt is screwed into the base of the knob from the inside of the cabinet or drawer. If bolts are too long or short they can be cut to size or easily replaced at a local hardware store.

Coordinate your home further and create a new theme with glass by installing glass doorknob sets and window tie backs as well. A simple way to updating the look of any room is replacing older and worn hardware and giving new life to the older furniture and doors in your home. Glass cabinet and drawer hardware is also available in a variety of colors if you want to add a touch of color as well.

LookInTheAttic & Company offers a wide selection of beautiful glass cabinet hardware. They also offer a great selection of doorknobs and window hardware to complete the theme. Be sure to ask questions if you are unsure about size or installation instructions. Glass hardware is a unique and beautiful addition to any home and a great way to redecorate without spending a lot of time and money in the process.
