This fat knob has not been used for quite a while. It comes out of the Art Deco era (1920-1930s). It probably was used on a kitchen cabinet. Today, however, this striking knob could be used anywhere to accentuate any piece of furniture, art work, or cabinet.
The chrome knob was made originally in two pieces. The top is crimped or merged into a stem base. The top measures 1 1/4 inches across and continues to be that size for a thickness of 1/2 inch. The stem is narrow and then spreads to a base of 3/4 inch. There are grippers on the underneath side to adhere to the surface of the wood.
The unique feature of this knob are the black circles on the top. This is typical Art Deco style. The knob stands 1 1/4 inches tall. To say the least, this fat one, is one of our favorites.
