I seriously love the look of these knobs, but was deceived by the title "Glass Melon Knobs." These knobs are acrylic. I'm sure I just missed where it said that...but really the title is a little misleading. Anyways, I'm still very happy with them. They arrived packaged very nicely and look lovely on my refurbished antique dresser. Far better than anything I could find at a local hardware store!

I first saw the glass melon knobs in an Anthropologie catalog when I was in high school and instantly fell in love with the design and colors, but it was eight years before I finally had a reason to get them. I painted an old dresser gold and wanted hardware that was functional but visionary, something with the look of an antique, but that was also new and contemporary. Only the glass melon knobs that I had seen years ago in a picture in an Anthro catalog could pull everything together (pun intended) in my mind! They were well worth the wait! The quality of these knobs is exceptional, and the color of the glass is deep and vibrant. They're very sturdy, but most importantly for my purposes, they're pretty. Pictures do not do them justice.

This is a gorgeous knob. We replaced all of the bedroom and bathroom cabinetry knobs with these. However, please watch out for the metal prongs! They stick out and catch skin, clothing, towels and tights/stockings. I now have snags in three pairs of pants and four pairs of tights; towels; and have had my skin lacerated. Fortunately, my kids are all grown up; otherwise, I would not keep these knobs in the house. They could really harm a youngster or an elderly or disabled person.
