Likeso many artistic movements, it had its origins in Europe. The name "Art Nouveau" is actually French for "new art". It ischaracterized by organic and highly curved forms, with particularly strong flora and fauna representations. Like the arts andcrafts movement, which was popular in Europe at the time, the goal of Nouveau was to harmonize its forms. However, unlikeArts and Crafts, Art Nouveau did not emphasize hand-made objects and instead, like the Victorians, embraced the machine.Art Nouveau hardware is often mistakenly referred to as "Craftsman", but is usually more curved and refined, making use ofstylized organic forms. Depression Era (Glass) Since the Art Deco period eclipsed the Great Depression (1930-1941), we see a resurgence of less dramatic forms and cheapermaterials used for construction. Glass, though available in years past, was rediscovered. The classic, eight sided glass doorknob appeared on even the most expensive construction projects. Its less glamorous cousin, the fluted glass knob, becameconspicuous on middle class bungalows throughout America. New colors, inspired by Carnival and Depression glass dinnerware,found its way to door and cabinet knobs. Milk glass, black, cobalt, and red were just a few of the color options for theexceptionally popular six sided cabinet knob with the bolt through the center. You would not be wrong to refer to this as theGlass Era. International Buyers - Please Note: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost.
