Almost Familiar

I found an old, round brass knob in a drawer in the kitchen today. Of course, it's going into my Break-off Collection.
The funny thing is that it is almost familiar; I can almost remember the piece of furniture it came from.
Almost familiar; like a snatch of music from an old song you almost think you know; a song you very likely did know when you were very, very little.
Almost familiar, like old, faded photographs of people and/or places you almost think you remember. But do you remember them from having seen them yourself, or from having been told about them by your parents and grandparents?
And where did that knob come from?
