Anthropologie Mercury Knobs Love

I have confessed my love for Anthropologie's mercury glass melon knobs before in this post.

Every once in a while I check their website in the hopes that they go on sale.  No luck on that.  But when I checked a couple of days ago I found this!!

Sigh!!  These mercury glass beauties now come in different colors.  I LOVE the soft blue.

Speaking of soft, they also come in this delicate pink color.

Really, can one be IN love with a knob?  Here it is in a heavenly amber color.

In gold, they exudes glamour.

I NEED one in every color!  I want them for my kitchen cabinets.  I need 22 of them.  See my hesitation?  But I have given up on waiting for a sale and I am ready to bite the bullet and buy them at full price.

Here's where I can use your opinion.  Does anyone out there have these knobs? They are 2" in diameter.  Do you think they are too big for kitchen cabinets?

I have the original silver ones. I had to have them and bought them about a year ago. They are on a dresser in our main living area. They are beautiful, maybe more so in person. I still love them. Here's one thing to consider: I have had no problems with mine at all...but we don't actually use them much. They are on a piece that we use for storage so they don't get daily use. Some of the comments on the Anthropologie website said they break easily. They do appear to be glass so I'm wondering if they would hold up on kitchen cabinets that get daily use. They would look awesome but I would buy a couple of extras to have as replacements just in case or maybe use these on upper cabinets or glass cabinets only and use a complimentary knob on the rest. Here are a picture of mine

i LOOOVE the blue... maybe not love, maybe lust? like have to have them now.
i have a gold one on a piece and love it, but my kids played with it and it was always loose. i still lved it though. the other thing to consider is that the backside of them is not a screw head- they screw on with a post and a nut, so you will be left with it sticking out from your cabinet a little- just a thought- you could always cut it with a dremel.

I don't think 2 inches is too big. Are you going to get all colors?

Cassie is right about the backside of the knob. I have some like that on my drawers in my kitchen, and they're always coming loose and they do stick out. But hey, that's the price of beauty, right?

They are so gorgeous!!!! Now I want them! :) I don't think that that would be too big. It sounds like others have had them and love them so I say go for it! I have glass knobs and they hold up really well. The screws stick into the backside of t he cabinets and drawers and I haven't had any issues with that other than coming loose every once in a while, but no biggie. :)

They are beautiful but I'd only buy one at first to see if they would really work for you!
