Doorknob Set, Brass, Sea Urchin, Mortice Latch

Please roll over the above image to zoom in.

An unusual and striking door knob set. The original design dates from the 18th century during the time when explorers were bringing back to England samples of the new discoveries from South Sea voyages. The Natural History of these trips caught the public imagination with designs based on coral and other Pacific animals becoming popular in wallpapers and fabrics. This door knob is an example of how the aesthetic went even further. This is a pretty sophisticated reproduction even faithfully replicating the threaded backplate feature that hid the mounting screws. The knob measures 2¼in tall by 2½in in diameter.
