The first image is of a door knob I picked a while back at a swapmeet the other images are from the Krisel & Palmer home in Palm Springs. Although mine is a little different I'm sure they were made by the same company. I hope you like it as much as I do.
This house was built to impress, and rightfully so for the family that helped shape Palm Springs into the modern and celebrated city it is today. Tragically the Alexander family died in a plane crash in 1965, only getting to enjoy this home for a short time. Elvis’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker lived in a neighboring house and saw the Alexander home was for lease a couple of years after their death. Mr. Presley couldn’t resist and considered it so special that he spent his honeymoon here. read more here: http://www.midmodernie.com/the-house-of-tomorrow-exterior/
