This pair of door knobs came to us together. They match each other. However, one door knob is brass, and the other one is stamped steel. They are from the 1920s to 1940s. The practice of having two different mediums was for a couple of reasons. The brass knob was the “show” knob that was exposed to the panoramic room and to visitors. The opposite knob was on the backside next to the wall and not seen. OR The brass knob was for a bedroom door, while the steel knob was for the closet side or bathroom.
This pair has the circle pattern, which was popular during the Art Deco era. Each knob measures 2 1/4 inches across and 1 1/4 inches deep. The circle is formed by a ridge that is stamped into the face of the knob.
A spindle and two set screws are included.
