Seller: randallw6 (1,175) 100%, Location: Snellville, Georgia, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 232156230357 Condition: very good vintage condition, Color: faint brass wash, Maker: unknown; not marked, Material: steel, Details: Here's another really nice vintage, historical and antique door hardware set consisting of two beautiful 12 point crystal glass knobs with brass collars, handsome stamped steel Art Deco/Nouveau era door plates with faint brass wash, with spindle and set screws, all cleaned up--- so you don't have to! They are ready to install. These antiques date back to the 1930's or so and are as popular today as they were back then, if not more so. AND, so much prettier and better- quality than those cheaply-made reproductions you see at some retail stores, with just plain glass knobs that don't sparkle. Each backplate measures about 6.25"H x 1.76+"W; with classic keyhole as shown. Knobs are typical 2" diameter; do not spin in collars; no obvious chips or cracks; interior glass is clear in one; a bit light gray in the other and appear to match fairly closely. All parts carefully cleaned to bring out a wonderful patina & luster. Not new or perfect; (who wants that?) but good, vintage condition, consistent with age and use. Spindle screws look original. These oldies were originally used with a mortise lock, but you don't need one; a "tube latch" will work just fine on modern doors. You can find tube latches at Ace Hardware or I can provide either tube latch or mortise lock for small additional cost. I encourage questions before buying; I am no expert on these. Beautiful vintage antique door hardware that will make your door look special! I love these oldies; and so will you!! See notes below. INSTALLATION OPTIONS: On a MODERN door, you would need what's called a "tube latch" (see pic 6), with a SQUARE hole in the latch (some newer tube latches on newer door hardware do not have a square hole); to fit the square spindle (the rod that connects the two door knobs). The tube latch inserts into the edge of the door near the knob holes and then the spindle goes thru the square hole and connects the two knobs, which then will turn the latch. If you have an OLDER door, you may have what's called a "mortise" lock (see pic 7), a slim metal "box" that slides in the edge of the door and the spindle connecting the two knobs goes thru the square hole, similar to the tube latch operation noted above. Either way, it's very easy and Presto; you have a lovely, working door! What kind of door do u have? I'll be happy to walk u thru whatever application you have/need!!
