ZLW-206K Art Nouveau or Art Deco Style Asian Face Motif R&E Doorknob
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.
The 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.
Diameter: 2 ¼"
Projection: 1 ¾"
This doorknob is sold by each.
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, which determines the type of 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 ¾", 2 ¼" or 2 5⁄8" backset. If you also need a turnlatch knob, we have an oval knob turnlatch, and the popular crescent shape turnlatch.
The combination of this knob mounted on matching Art Nouveau Asian series plates is "nouveau perfectique".
