Seller: randallw6 (919) 100%, Location: Snellville, Georgia, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 232157379826 Beautiful, elegant, vintage, historical, ornate, antique brass or bronze door plate featuring unique thumb turn, in Victorian or Art Deco design; paired with two-12 point crystal glass knobs with brass collars; spindle and set screws, all cleaned up and polished--- so you don't have to. These antiques are as popular today as they were years ago, if not more so. AND, so much prettier and better- quality than those inferior reproductions you see at some retail stores, with cheap metal and plain, regular glass knobs that have no sparkle. This exquisite fancy door plate measures about 8-3/8" x 2-3/8"; with classic keyhole as shown. "Back in the day", a "rosette" door plate was usually used on the other side of the door that was not the featured side. These are easily found at flea/antique markets and on-line auctions and will complete your set. The crystal knobs are 2" diameter, do not spin in collars; no obvious chips or cracks; feel great in your hand. All parts carefully cleaned to bring out a wonderful brass/bronze patina & crystal luster that will age beautifully. This set is not new or perfect; but in very good to excellent vintage condition, consistent with age and use. These oldies were originally used with a "mortise" lock, but you don't need one; a "tube latch" will work just fine on modern doors. You can find tube latches at Ace Hardware or I can provide one for additional cost. Beautiful vintage antique door hardware that will make your door look special! I love these oldies and so will you!! I encourage questions before buying; I am no expert on these. I want you to be pleased with your purchase. Please read on................. INSTALLATION OPTIONS: On a MODERN door, you would need what's called a "tube latch" (see pic 8), with a SQUARE hole in the latch (some tube latches do not have a square hole); to fit the square spindle (the rod that connects the two door knobs). The tube latch inserts into the edge of the door near the knob holes and then the spindle goes thru the square hole and connects the two knobs, which then will turn the latch. If you have an OLDER door, you may have what's called a "mortise" lock (Pic 9), a slim metal "box" that slides in the edge of the door and the spindle connecting the two knobs goes thru the square hole, similar to the tube latch operation noted above. Find them at antique shows or flea markets. I also have several sizes I can sell separately if you need. Contact me and I'll be happy to discuss any installation concerns. Condition: Very Good vintage condition, Color: brass or bronze, Maker: unknown; not marked, Material: bronze or brass w/crystal glass
