Door Knob Sets

The antique and vintage door knob sets offered for sale here are a "must have" if you are restoring an old house and also will allow authentic historic hardware for any additions or even a new home. Your plans may, or may not, require a latch or lock with the set. For items that include only the door knobs and door plates you may wish to also purchase a lock/latch to make a complete set. These "sets" are sometimes combined for a pleasing appearance rather than as they were manufactured. The old timers took creative license in this respect and I continue that tradition.

To better see all the details of approximately 100 beautiful door knob sets I would suggest that you select one item and then take advantage of the arrows at the top of that page. You will be able to flip through all the larger photos just like in a catalog!
