Solid Brass Amarat Door Knobs
Originally patented in 1909 by Russell and Erwin the “Amarat” pattern was widely used at the end of the Victorian era, a style that has come to be known as Eastlake. We have interpreted the original design into a lovely set of solid cast brass hardware. The set is composed of two back plates, two slip on knobs, a shaft that connects the two knobs by set screws, and two set screws. This set will not work for pre-drilled doors, nor can it be made into “dummy knobs.” They do not come with any latch or locking device. For more information visit:
Solid Brass Exterior Beaded Oval Knobs
This set mimics what would be found on some of the Creole homes in and around New Orleans. Cast out of solid brass and polished to a mirror finish, lacquered to prevent immediate tarnishing. It translates nicely when modernizing and updating an older home while trying to maintain the small details that make an older home so appealing. The set comes with two back plates, two knobs, a shaft that connects the two knobs with set screws, and two set screws. These will not work with pre-drilled doors, and cannot be made into “dummy knobs.” This set does not come with any locking or latching device.
Solid Brass Jerome Knobs
Originally patented in 1909 by Russell and Erwin, the “Jerome” pattern was used during much of the craftsman era. We have interpreted the original design into a lovely set of solid cast brass hardware. The set is composed of two back plates, two screw on knobs, a shaft that connects the two knobs by set screws, and four set screws. This set will work for pre-drilled doors, it can be made into “dummy knobs” (call for price). They do not come with any latch or locking device.
