This handsome set made by Sargent & Co. Manufacturing (stamped on the back) was placed in the 1902 Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalog, no pattern name given. The catalog advertised it as a “cheaper line of ornamental goods.” The finish was described as an “antique copper, sand finish.” It was electro-copper plated. The advertisment also noted that the back plates were larger than “usually found.” , ,This example has two heavy matching pair of iron knobs, weighing almost a pound. The electro plating is no longer on the knobs. Their condition, however, is excellent. ,The back plates are larger than usual, measuring 8 7/8 inches long and 2 3/8 inches wide. The keyhole is 3 1/4 inches from the bottom of the plate. The back plates definitely show the antique copper plating. Each plate is heavy because of the iron base material. We have included eight small screws for the back plates and, of course, the door knobs have the set screws.
