ZE-26 Doorknob Reproduction Famous Doggy Door Knob by R&E

This "doggy doorknob" is the most famous and the most expensive American doorknob in the world, by antique auction record. At a contemporary auction, the Doggy Doorknob paired with the R&E Triangle Door Plate (ZE-52 ) sold for $4,000.

It is by popular opinion of hardware experts that no finer doorknob has ever been made. Ludwig Kreuzinger design patent #4,098. June 7th 1870. R&E, or Russell & Erwin, was one of the finest hardware manufacturers of the Victorian era.

Ours is cast directly from an original. This doorknob is sold by each. To make a set, order two knobs and a connecting square threaded rod spindle (not included) or extra long 5" spindle may be ordered separately.

If you're a dog lover, don't miss our doggie doorbell operator , and our German Shepherd door knocker ZLW-217 . Your entry can inform the world that you're a loyal both to dogs, and to high quality entry hardware.

We offer an extensive selection of Victorian doorknob roses and doorknob backplates in many styles to suit this doorknob. Of course our preference would be the R.E. door plates !

How far from the edge of the door is the center of your doorknob? Thisis the backset, and determines which latch or mortise lock you use. Fora 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 . We also carry the mortise locks with unusual backsets to accomodate your Russell Erwin door plates.

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.

This wonderful dog doorknob looks great paired with our Windsor turnlatch door plate , too!

Measures 2 3/8" in diameter and projects 2 3/4".
