The size of most glass knobs was originally six, eight or twelve facets and they were normally clear in appearance. The faces of these knobs were generally flat and allowed for persons to be able to see the interior of the lock where there were pin-prick designs, bullet or even star pattern into the bases of these glass door knobs. Although these glass door knobs became famous at the end of World War I, the coloured ones that had robin’s egg or cobalt, emerald, white milk among other colours were rare. Although the coloured ones were not so widespread, they too came into different shapes such as octagonal, oval, crystal globes among other shapes and in the midst had tiny bubbles within.
