Flashed copper hardware was popular from 1900 to the 1920s. Some households had their entire homes furnished with this hardware. The flashing, however, was not durable. Today, we find few pieces that have survived the wear and tear of time. This back plate is in very good condition. It has the shine of the copper still intact and the flashing is clean. Because the flashing was random, no two pieces are alike.
This plate is a beveled style. It stands away from the door a quarter inch. (It does not lay flat.) The plate measures 7 inches long and 2 1/4 inches wide. The keyhole is 2 inches below the door knob hole. The plate is a stamped steel with a copper coating, that was then flashed with a black lacquer.
Screws will be provided.
