This exquisite front-door plate is from the early 20th Century when the oval shape and beaded edging was the rage. This large plate is in very good condition. It is stamped steel with a copper plating, and then it was flashed with a black lacquer. The back plate measures 10 inches long and 2 7/8 inches wide. The door knob hole center is 1 3/4 inches from the top key hole and 3 1/8 inches from the bottom key hole. This is a piece of art and doesn’t have to be used on a door!
