This gorgeous old brass doorknob came to us right off a fellow collector's bathroom door when he and his wife decided to downsize. It's absolutely authentic and ready to use ! The only thing missing is the small screws to mount the back plates on your door (readily available at any hardware store).
A great gift, or use it on one of your own interior doors and enjoy a working relic from the Pennsylvania Railroad !
The raised letters are in Old English and are very attractive on a black background with cross-hatching.
Size is just over 2 inches, standard for an interior house door. This is the complete assembly needed to mount it.
There are NO cracks or splits in the brass and no metal damage.The only thing we can find wrong is some stray paint on the edges in a couple of places where someone was careless painting the door behind the brass plates. There are a very few tiny surface bumps from age and use. The outer edge has been smoothed by hand use over the years.
This is a great example of the best kind of railroad memorabilia -- it can be USED as-is without damaging it!
