These set of seven salvaged door handles are made from brass and steel with an Art Nouveau decoration to the fronts of the knobs. Each of the handles have two brass knobs that fit onto the ends of a steel spindle and are secured with grub screws. There are two later pressed round brass back plates that fit over the ends of the knobs (some of these are slightly differnt but the same diametre). Most of the steel spindles have ORITUR 1925 and pattent marks for Austrialia and what appears to be this country stamped on them.
I have polished the brass retaining its aged appearance. The handles have some wear of knocks, splits, and scratches, which is to be expected in items of such age, but are structurally sound, and there is some copper discolouration that sometimes happens during the making process (please see photographs). These handles are suitable to fit onto internal wooden doors (modern or antique), with traditional mortice or rim locks.
You will need to find some round head screws with which to attach the back plates to your wooden doors. The door handle knobs measure approximately 70 mm (2 3/4") wide, 41 mm (1 5/8") deep.
