Vintage Porcelain Door Knobs....

Porcelain was a very common door knob material a long time ago. It was durable, attractive, and more affordable than brass and crystal. There are tons of these knobs on the market right now, and if you're looking for matching door knobs you're most likely to find them in porcelain.


It's extremely important that you make sure that the door knobs that you're bidding on aren't chipped. Be sure to ask because this is extremely common with period ceramic door knobs.


Porcelain is also very heavy, so you may end up paying steep shipping charges for these vintage door knobs. Fortunately, they are by far the most affordable of all of the vintage door knob materials, so you won't end up spending much at all.



Many porcelain door knobs come in standard boilerplate white or ivory. White porcelain door knobs are quite common and are often dressed up with patterns or prints or with metallic accents such as brass or stainless steel. The fancier the porcelain the higher the prices as well. You can usually find simple porcelain door knobs for less than ten dollars however it is not uncommon to find them as high as thirty of forty dollars as the knobs get more fancy and delicate.


Porcelain door knobs aren't cheap but if you shop smart you can definitely afford them and other fine accents.
