This pair is like new — never used. They have the flashed copper treatment, which dates this pair from 1900 to the 1920s. Because the copper coating and flashing is somewhat fragile, many piece of this era have not survived well. Since the final step of this procedure was the flashing, or spraying, with black lacquer, no two pieces are identical. This pair, therefore, is exceptional and match very well.
The back plates are 6 1/4 inches long and 2 1/8 inches wide. The door knob hole and key hole are 2 1/8 inches apart. Because the plates have beveled edges, they stand out away from the door 3/16 inch, or do not lay perfectly flat.
We are guessing this pair was used in the very early 1900s because the pattern still reflects the Victorian era (1880-1915). The curved leaf pattern is typical Victorian.
Screws will be included.
