F… Frankfurt
Frankfurt, Germanyby Ghost Hunter Frankfurt
This isn’t Deco, but Jugendstil, the German variety of Art Nouveau and dating to the two decades before Deco began. Some of its forms overlap with Deco. I chose this for Frankfurt because honestly it’s difficult to find anything really Deco in that city (a great deal of the central city was destroyed or rebuilt) and c’mon, look at this!

Brass & Bronze Doorknobs and Plates
by The Door Store

See pics of old doorknobs and say to yourself, “I want that!” Well, you can. And this Toronto company has the Flickr stream to show you. Many of these are reproductions. I’ll be posting a bunch of sets. The link for an even larger selection of historic brass and bronze doorknobs is here. I will be including mostly Art Deco but also some Art Nouveau.
