This lovely set comes from the Victorian era (1870-1915). This is a cast-iron set of doorknobs and back plates was made by the Lockwood Mfg Co in Norwalk, CT. The back plates have a rubbed bronze finish, while the knobs no longer have a bronze finish. Cast bronze or the bronze color was very popular in the late 19th Century. The knobs have a pattern on the topside as well as on the backside. The Rochefort pattern on the knobs and back plates depict leaves in almost a swirl pattern. The pattern on the back is different.
Each knob measures 2 3/8 inches across and 1 3/8 inches deep. The back plates measure 8 inches long and 2 1/2 inches wide. The keyhole is 2 1/4 inches below the doorknob hole. The set consists of five pieces: two matching doorknobs, two matching back plates, a spindle and two set screws. Screws for the back plates will also be included.
