Creators and manufacturers of cabinet knobs and pulls in eight popular categories that appeal mostly to those seeking something luxurious and different from the ordinary "me too" designs found in big box stores. All NRM products are handmade in the U.S. of lead free fine pewter which is important if there are children below the age of ten in the home. Most cabinet hardware is not lead free particularly if it comes from offshore. It's cheaper to buy but the higher price can show up in later life lowered I.Q.s. by as much as 10 points. Infants like to handle "shiny things" and after handling their fingers always go into their mouths and that's the danger. Lead free costs more but it's worth the difference. Kitchen cabinet hardware of "different" luxury quality.
