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.

Ring My Bell

leave a comment »

For those of you who now have that cheesy disco tune stuck in your head, our apologies. But you’re thinking about bells and if you read last week’s post you may have already connected the dots. In continuing the spring quest to beautify your front entry, a new doorbell is one more feature to consider. Here at Look in the Attic & Co, we have many fine examples of doorbells and chimes to offer. 

One lovely example we offer is the solid brass Art Nouveau style doorbell in oil rubbed bronze finish. This bell is made for years of service and the quality is impeccable. Even the button itself is made of metal, not plastic. Each piece is hand cast and hand finished to maintain the highest level of detail.

While we offer many styles, here is one more for your consideration. In smaller entry ways where a petite doorbell fits to scale, this Lost Wax Cast Eastlake doorbell presents a 2 7/8 inch diameter with fine detailing. The lost wax casting process, sometimes known by the French name of cire perdue is an ancient practice that is still used for artwork today. Here it has been used to preserve the fine details of the original Eastlake doorbell components, while providing a product that will last for ages.

Additional bells in Traditional, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Victorian, Eastlake, and Craftsman styles are available.
