This is the door knob to our bathroom. It was covered with about 1/16" thick worth of paint. All of this nice detail was covered up for about 70+ years till I removed the paint a few years ago :-)

Thanks for looking!
Chris

Hey, I already knew about your exquisite watch collection!

Now, that +70 yo knob makes a pretty nice piece for a door knob collectionBtw, thrilling to think about the the touches and gazes once stood on theelegant design you uncovered...

I know! I wonder myself who has touched this door knob besides my family. My grandfather lived in this apartment since the 1930's so for a good 70+ years it's been my family touching it :-) I believe the building was built around 1890's so there's 40 years of others touching it :-) We have at least one other door knob that I haven't uncovered. Looks like it has a lot of nice details on it. One day I'll clean it up :-)
