Victorian Aesthetic Japanese Flower Knob Circa 1885 2 3/8

ZE-983 Antique Reproduction Aesthetic Movement Flower Door Knob circa 1885

This is a common favorite Aesthetic Movement knob among collectors. Large and heavy, it makes a dramatic entry statement. The original was made by R&E, Circa 1885. Our reproduction is cast from an original antique, using the lost wax casting method. The final knob is hand waxed for beauty and durability.

This doorknob would be at home in Asian Contemporary, Arts & Crafts, and Art Deco decor as well as Victorian. In addition to our fine R&E door plates, picture it with our Windsor door plate ZB-13 . Superb!

Measures 2 3/8" in diameter and projects by 2". This doorknob is sold by each, so for a set order two doorknobs plus a doorknob shaft . For extra thick doors, you may purchase an extra long square doorknob shaft spindle separately, which may be trimmed as needed.

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 unusual backset mortise locks to work with R&E's special sizes.

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.


Some of our most popular rosettes for use with this knob are:
