Kreuzinger's Lion Door Knob
A statement piece that is perfect for interior entrance doors. Wonderful reproduction of the highly sought after, near inaccessible, Victorian era lion head door knob designed by Ludwig Kreuzinger. The design is such an important part of forgotten American history that it is such a pleasure to celebrate and re-expose it.
This is a very grand piece. It was tricky to cast and needed a fair amount of bench work to make any blemish, due to a life of service, come across with the right intentionality. Roughly three inches in diameter and quite grand with a deep relief.
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 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.
