Any door that has an alternate method of latching, but needs a cool piece of original antique hardware to pull it open and closed. Other applications include use as wall towel hooks, wall coat hooks, curtain tiebacks or just wall art my antique dummy door knobs are all actual antique, period specific door knobs that have been mated to a door plate or rosette (the round door plates). Mounting to the surface is via screws through the door plate screw holes (which you supply).
The reason why we do not provide mounting screws are. Every application (french, cabinet, barn, pantry, wall, hook or art) is a bit different. There are differences in door construction, door materials (wood types), and door thicknesses. There is no "universal" screw type, size or material. Aesthetically, clients may like the look of one screw type or color over another.Some clients may want the screws to blend in, and so make like black, silver, bronze, or bright brass face colors. Some may like the screws to "pop", and so go for opposing colors. Some want to match existing, and some don't care at all. For advice, almost all period screws that we deal with were single slot faced wood screws. They did come in three popular head styles: flathead, ovalhead, or roundhead. Your choice will depend on the door plate type, as well as the look your are wanting. Making an antique dummy knob is a process at our end, and most of the knobs that i have are not yet assembled (in order to give the client the option of dummy or operable). Because they are "made to order", it typically adds 2 to 3 days onto the order process time. If you need them quicker, please sent a note with the order and we will see what we can do to speed the order a bit. As dummy knobs, we typically permanently connect the knobs to the plates when they are ordered (although there are a few that are pre-assembled as dummies).
With most pairs of operable knobs i will include a knob spindle and knob set screws. Plate mounting screws will be supplied by you as required for your installation application. Custom knobs sets or components: if you would like a custom set or multiples, or maybe just parts and pieces of what you see, please feel free to drop us a note and let us know your questions are, or what you might need.
