Elaborate castings by Metallic Compression and successors such as Russell & Erwin (which took over the company), Mallory Wheeler, and Yale & Town complemented new Victorian-era houses. In contrast with the austere Federal and Greek Revival–style architecture that was popular in the first half of the 19th century, the Second Empire, Stick, and Queen Anne styles of the second half were downright romantic, and certainly deserving of knobs that were more expressive than the plain porcelain and pressed-glass ones used before. In addition to elk and lions, hummingbirds, flowers, ships, various geometric shapes, and even Japanese geishas were cast onto metal doorknobs. There were also ones with symbols of fraternal organizations, state seals, and commercial insignias.
