ZE-23 Reproduction R&E Knight in Plumed Helmet Circa 1870
This doorknob feature the profile of a knight or god with a plumed helmet. A grand, masculine statement, as Victorian entries dictated. Today, this style doorknob would go well not only with Victorian, but also with Classical, Tudor, and continental styles of decor. The doorknob is sold by each. To make a set, order two doorknobs plus a connecting spindle .
Molded directly from the original, which was one of the first four original patented Kreuzinger knobs (Design Pat: # 4100). Our reproductions are cast in solid brass, then darkened to an antique patina, and lacquered to preserve the tone. This with our triangle door plate for an entry that's sure to be a conversation starter.
Measures 2 3/8" in diameter and projects by 2 1/8". Solid brass feels terrific in your hand.
For extra thick doors, you may purchase an extra long square doorknob shaft spindle separately, which may be trimmed as needed.
We offer an extensive selection of Victorian doorknob roses and doorknob backplates in many styles to suit this doorknob.
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 .
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.
We also make a Windsor classic door>plate with turnlatch . This door plate would work well with the Knight doorknob.
