ZE-811 Reproduction R&E Japanese Lady Geisha Motif Door Knob circa 1879
Japanese motif (Aesthetic School) oriental lady doorknob by R&E, Design Patent: # 11,191 by H.E. Russell, Jr. May 13, 1879. Appropriate in contemporary Asian Modern interiors, Aesthetic Movement in the Arts & Crafts movement, and Art Nouveau, as well as Victorian Chinoiserie.
Ours is reproduced directly from an original. The parasol is concave with radiating unequal lines, which almost brings the doorknob to life. Measures 2 1/4" in diameter and is 2" tall.
Can be used with our Asian style doorknob backplate. For an over-the-top Aesthetic entry, add our 4 1/2" Asian hinges. Another favorite choice with this doorknob would be any R.E. backplate.
This doorknob is sold by each. For a set, order two doorknobs plus a doorknob 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 turn latch knob, we have an oval knob turnlatch, and the popular crescent shape turnlatch.
We also make a lovely Windsor door>plate with the turn latch included.
