Door knobs - 1800s - early 1900s

The current door knobs consist of mostly round glass knobs with a silver circular disk embedded in the middle of the glass. There are a few knobs that do not match. We are going to see if we can locate matching knobs and rosettes. One of the doors removed has a pair of the needed knobs so we only need approximately 3 more knobs. If anyone knows where we may find additional knobs we are open to suggestions.

Antique Silver Mercury Glass Door Kob - These are very rare. I have been searching on line for 2.5 hrs. with no luck. Will try Restoration Resources later this week.

Door with missing knob - will try to locate replacement.

Pocket door (right side) to Arch Bishop's office. Will try to locate a key to allow the pocket doors to lock.
