Set of Unique Art Nouveau Porcelain Door Knobs in Off-White Color. This design was created around 1897 by Hector Guimard, a master of Art Nouveau, to whom we owe the magnificent entrances of the Paris Metro. The undulating shape of this knob is the result of an intriguing creative process carried out by Guimard. First, he took a block of clay in his left hand, giving it a general shape; then, with his right hand, he completed the work by forming the final appearance of the block, leaving the imprint of his thumb and forefinger.
French Art Nouveau is characterized by elegance and uncompromising form, where there is no room for restraint, and all ornamentation is connected to the shape and structure of the object, as well as the material from which it is made. Guimard's knob delights with the apparent simplicity of its well-studied form and the perfection of craftsmanship. It will be an extraordinary and refined decoration for apartments in townhouses.
