Margaret’s favorite door knobs are the Victorian cast iron ones. The feel of cast iron is solid and heavy. This is one of our cast-iron sets. The pattern and maker are unknown, but date from 1880s to about 1910. The back plates of this set are cast iron but have a bronze rubbed finish. This was a popular technique in pre-1900 hardware industry.

Each knob has the black iron color and is heavily decorated. The top has leaves and roping and the back of the knob has a swirl pattern. The knobs have the old two-piece construction–the top was made separately and applied to the base. The knobs measure 2 1/4 inches round.

The matching back plates are heavy and measure 8 1/4 inches vertically and 2 3/4 inches across. The keyhole is 2 1/4 inches below the knob hole.

This set consists of 5 pieces: two door knobs, two back plates, one spindle. We will include the set screws for the spindle and screws for the back plates.
