Reproduction of a very rare knob rumored to have been salvaged from an all girls Catholic school in Chicago. The design, which has sublime proportion, likely dates from the 1920's.

Cast in polished translucent urethane with embedded, manually machined, unpolished brass shaft.

Molded from an original, and though polished, will endearingly show heritage marks from a life of service.

Our knobs have an impressive weight due to the sturdy shaft design and their 360 brass alloy. They compare quite well to originals which were usually hollow.

Five color options are available that look wonderful in interiors ranging from stately to funky. Durable, attractive, a great pairing for simple backing hardware.

By default, all knobs come with our universal fitment kit where the shafts are machined to 5/8" but include a precision brass bushing to increase the diameter to 11/16 as well as another bushing to mate to glass backing hardware. If you know you need a specific size and want it custom machined, please specify in the comment section and we can easily produce it. We have a helpful fitment kit and feel free to contact us with any questions about sizing.

Drilled and tapped for an included standard 20 TPI spindle. Sold as individual knob. Includes an Allen key and set screw for mounting knobs to spindle. For interior doors.

Any pictured backing hardware is not included.
