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.
