Every cabinet knob and pull in the North River collection has been personally designed and deeply sculpted in high relief by Corrine (Corky) owner/partner of www.northrivermint.net Corrine's background in cabinet knob design was started by accident many years ago in NYC while she was a successful sculptor featured in a Madison Avenue gallery. Her genre was the "Flappers"...those "Jazz Age" babes of the "Roaring Twenties" speakeasys. Needing 65 knobs for a kitchen in a new co-op apartment with nothing available in an exciting design, she created her own luxurious collection and North River was born. Today the company has steadily grown to almost 300 designs. The best part is they're still all handcast in the U.S.A. of lead-free jewelers metal bearing the commercial designation of "fine pewter." Despite the higher cost of lead-free metal and unlike most offshore manufacturers NRM has committed to lead-free to be socially responsible. Lead-free helps protect kids by not contributing to lowered I.Q.s., a malady manifesting in later years after constant handling of reachable cabinet hardware or any lead products
(mostly manufactured in in oriental countries) we wouldn't have it any other way.
