ITEM DETAILS DESCRIPTION You are being offered in a BUY NOW sale my last set original brass door knobs from NYC’s famous Commodore Hotel. This offering is truly rare as explained below and meant for the collector who must have the most complete, guaranteed set you will ever see offered. In the late 1970’s, the hotel was being remodeled. My girl friend and I went to the contents sale. It was on a brutally cold winter day and the line was blocks long. We took turns stand in line for a half hour while the other waited in a warm Dunkin Donuts. Finally over four hours, we got in. Not wanting to walk away empty handed, all I ended up purchasing was door knobs. Being sort of a nut, I wanted a complete set, including the back plate and escutcheon. These were not given to purchasers of the set of knobs. Having my handy Swiss Army knife, I went to one of the upper floors. As my girl friend kept watch, I unscrewed the back plates and escutcheons from one of the doors. It took what seemed forever since the screws to hold them on were quiet long. Thus I only unscrewed one set of back plates and escutcheons. Guys as goofy as me commented that they wished they could do what I was doing. One fellow asked to borrow my Swiss Army knife, but knowing the difficulty I had removing the screws, I had to say no. I had had enough and was ready to leave and have a beer. I describe this offering as rare because I highly doubt anyone else went thru the trouble to do what I did or had with them their trusty Swiss Army knife. The photos included in this listing are of the item being sold. You will receive two original Commodore, cast brass, door knobs and the post which attaches them as well the 2 back plates and 2 escutcheons. One knob has the Commodore emblem. The second knob also brass has a simple pattern. The back plates are different. The one which backs the Commodore emblem has a roped edge while the other does not. The back plates and escutcheons are stamped on the back YALE, with serial numbers. The knobs had no markings I could find indentifying the maker. THE COMMODORE The Commodore Hotel was designed by the Warren and Wetmore architectural firm and was constructed in 1919. Upon completion, the hotel was the second largest hotel in the world. The hotel was bought by Donald Trump in the late 1970's and underwent renovation. Before the renovation occurred, a huge contents sale was held. Many stood in lines for hours to purchase a piece of this historic site. The hotel was re-opened in 1980 under its current name, Grand Hyatt New York.
