The No 8088 cabinet knob reflects the later 19th century turning to sources of inspiration beyond the classical vocabulary. The ornament consists of three concentric rings that impress into the surface of the cabinet knob, thereby juxtaposing a soft, organic shape with the solid knob body. The restrained, elegant design of the cabinet knob and rose also appears strikingly modern. Recommended finishes include polished brass, polished nickel, light or dark antique brass, antique silver, or dark oxidized bronze. It is often specified with the companion No 1088 knob, which is manufactured in a variety of sizes for full-size doors. The cabinet knob is available in five sizes and is shown here with an optional rosette.
