This antique hardware is so rare I don’t even have a category to put it in! It is listed in my antique 1800’s hardware catalogs as being for French windows. Both knobs are white porcelain with no chips or cracks. They both have little age spots and the separate knob has charming crackling attesting to its age. The metal is bronze which might have had silver plating but I only see a tiny bit at the base of the crank. Nothing has been polished and the patina is lovely. This set could also be used as an unusual screen or French door handle with the addition of a small mortise lock.

The set is missing one of the little rosettes that would be inset into the wood. I think a nice little doorknob rosette could be substituted depending on the width of the wood it was being installed on.  

For size reference the little “door knob” is 1-7/8” diameter
Installed without a second rosette the window thickness can be between 1-1/8” and 1-3/8”. A second rosette would decrease that distance accordingly.
