Door Handle Design Inspiration and Historical Influence
A spade is one of the primary suits of a standard French 52-card deck of playing cards. Playing cards had been used in Europe in the 14th century, but the French deck of cards where using the suits of Hearts, Clubs, Diamonds, and Spades were first used in the 15th century when mass production by woodcuts became available. The spade resembles a leaf or an upside-down heart with an exaggerated tip and flat base, with the most popular of all cards, the Ace of Spades. The spade has been used throughout history as a design motif and commonly found on gate and door hardware.
