Quote from Article entitled Glass Door Knobs:

How glass doorknobs came to be has an interesting history. They have been around since the 19th century, but didn’t become widely used until America’s entry into World War I, when bronze, iron, and brass were brought in to make the military’s ammunition. Even after the war, and with the Second World War twenty years after, metals will reserved to rebuild the military, making glass a major source for home supplies. Molded and machine-cut glass doorknobs became mass-produced through the end of the 1940s; large and shaped variously like an Art Deco sculpture. The 1950’s changed style and taste, returning metallic, bronzed, and steeled doorknobs to the new suburban rebuilding of the country, which remains today.
