In our opinion, for true spirit of the Art Nouveau period, there cannot be a finer doorknob anywhere. Lost wax casting exhibits the finest details. Sold in darkened "antique" finish, lacquered to preserve its color. This doorknob is sold by each. Antique original is marked "Russwin", formerly R&E, the famous Russell & Erwin manufacturers. We assume that the originals were custom made, not a stock item. The Morris influence is strong in this design. All doorknobs use our threaded square spindle and the combination of this knob mounted on Art Nouveau Asian series plates is "nouveau perfectique". For a complete set, order two doorknobs plus a connecting doorknob spindle or shaft. For extra thick doors, you may purchase an extra long square doorknob shaft spindle, which may be trimmed as needed. How far from the edge of the door is the center of your doorknob? This is the backset, and determines which latch or mortise lock you use. For a 2 3/8" backset, we offer a tubular latch , and a privacy tubular deadbolt latch option. Very narrow panel doors or doors with lots of glass may need a 1 3/8" backset passage latch . If you prefer a full mortise lock with key function and mortise lock with privacy turnlatch function , we have 1 3/4", 2 1/4" or 2 5/8" backset. If you also need a turnlatch knob, we have an oval knob turnlatch , and the popular crescent shape turnlatch. 2 1/4" diameter by 1 3/4" tall.
